School-Based Mentors are assigned to a student in K-5 for the duration of the school year, based on the mentor and the child's interests. Mentors meet with their assigned student once a week, at the child's school, for about 45 minutes to an hour. Activities can range from helping with school work, playing games, sharing interests or simply chatting about school or home-life over lunch. Whatever the activity, the focus is on forming a supportive relationship with the child and encouraging school success. Every mentor, child and match is assigned a Mentor Coordinator who will be available and on-site for support and guidance.
