Reach out. Become a mentor in Covington.
The Covington Partners Mentoring Program at Holmes Middle and High Schools matches adult volunteers with 6th- through 10th-grade students. Mentors meet with students once a week during the school day (8 a.m. - 3 p.m.) for a year. Mentors also have the choice of moving into community-based after being matched. Mentors listen, support, befriend, and encourage local youth.
Students with mentors often show improvements in school attendance, academic achievement, and behavior.
A one-year commitment is required. Background checks are required of all volunteers. One-on-one training is provided with a program coordinator before volunteer starts to meet with student. On-site program coordinator is available for on going support.
