Mission Statement

Creative Mentoring, a program of Connecting Generations, supports in-school mentoring programs in New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties of Delaware. We provide quality training to volunteer in-school mentors as well as help schools design and implement quality in-school mentoring programs.

Research shows that a mentoring relationship can be one of the most important relationships in a child's development. Mentoring helps children achieve success in school and life by helping to build self-esteem, self-confidence, interpersonal communication skills, social values, aspirations, and school engagement. Through personal, one-on-one time in schools, mentors work with students to develop their unique qualities and reach their full potential.

Description

Creative Mentoring Works. All it takes is one hour a week and the desire to make a difference in the life of a child.
Applications take approximately one month to process from the time of receipt. Please register for a training session at the same time you apply so that we can place you with a child as quickly as possible. You will receive a copy of our mentor handbook Making The Connection during the free, three hour training session.

I believe that mentoring does have the benefit to help schools to design quality programs in school. Just believing that one difference or an extra mile can help a student in need also makes those who volunteered happily to support them. I would most likely recommend this organization to a friend because I believe that this is a community effort. When there are most people implementing it, it will make a bigger difference in the community, and I am happy to be that influencer.
