School Based Mentoring, involves volunteers offering children individualized time and attention on a consistent basis, with the venue being the child's school rather than the community. Volunteers and children meet regularly during the school year - typically each week, utilizing the resources available within the school: computer labs, the library, the gym, a classroom, or the schoolyard.
Whether they play board games, or read the newspaper together, their relationship promotes a positive school experience for the child: good attendance, positive peer and adult relationships, a positive attitude, and academic enrichment. As the friendship evolves over time, volunteers and children discover ways to make school and learning fun. When matches continue from one school year to the next, volunteers experience the satisfaction of watching their Littles achieve success in school. During the summer hiatus, matches may exchange letters, email messages or phone calls, or attend an agency-sponsored event.
