Will you be a mentor and a make a difference in the life of a young person? The program still needs mentors for 3 freshman girls and 1 freshman boy. The freshman class meets at East High School on Wednesdays from 8:05 - 9:30. We also need mentors for 2 sophomore boys. Sophomore mentors meet on Thursdays from 8:05 to 9:30. These students have been waiting for a mentor since August and it would be wonderful if they could finish the year matched with someone who can help them succeed and thrive. If you are interested please contact program director Aimee Arens.

The A+ Angels East High School Mentor Program pairs selected students with volunteer mentors (that's you) to offer guidance, support and encouragement along with help in academic and life skills. A+ Angels welcomes individuals with diverse backgrounds and life experiences to join the mentoring team. Mentor - student pairs can also arrange to meet online during this time or when available although in person meetings at East High School are preferred.
