Mission Statement

To create lasting relationships between mentor and student, in which the student feels empowered to take responsibility for their own life.

Description

EMPOWER is a three year empower based mentor program. It is designed for incoming 6th grade students to be matched with one mentor, who would follow that student through the program until their 8th grade year. For the 2015-2016 school year, we will be offering mentors to 6th, 7th and 8th grades at Denny International Middle School.

EMPOWER uses age appropriate e-mentoring along with the one-on-one in person mentoring. For the 6th grade year the students will learn about internet safety through different workshops. During the 7th grade year the students will correspond with their mentors through emails, learning about emailing safety, and the proper way of using email as communication. Then in the 8th grade year the students will engage in a monthly web chat with their mentor, learning about changing technology, safety of online web chats, and also social media safety.
