We are an in-school mentoring program that pairs caring adults & high school-aged volunteers with Issaquah School District students for one-on-one, social, emotional and/or academic support. We provide mentors for students at all grade levels at all 24 Issaquah schools.

VOICE mentors work with students for up to one hour, once per week throughout the school year. Mentors are thoroughly screened and trained before being approved for our program.
