The Stay in School Mentoring Project (SISMP) matches volunteers from the community across a broad spectrum of professions, with students that need guidance and support to help them be successful in school.
Due to the global pandemic we’re offering a virtual program for this school year. Our goal is to offer quality programming while keeping our students and mentors safe.
The new program will include Mentor Messages ... which are short inspirational messages that are pre recorded by our amazing mentors. The messages will be shared with students throughout Clark County School District virtually. In addition we will be offering virtual mentoring so students can still connect with trusted mentors in the community.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

Mentors go to the school to meet with the students, during school, for one hour, at minimum twice per month. The emphasis is not on tutoring, but rather spending quality time talking, playing board games, learning crafts, reading together, etc. The focus is to develop a relationship, in route to enhancing the student’s self-esteem and confidence in his or her ability to be successful in school. This will encourage the student to remain through graduation and beyond.
