Cotswold School is launching a Mentoring Program for at-risk 4th and 5th grade boys. Please see the information below. If you are a man with one extra hour of time on your hands each week and have an interest in making a positive impact on a young man, please get in touch with me. Or if there is a husband/brother/ father/ friend in your life who would like to get involved with this very meaningful program, I would ask that you please forward this along. Thanks for your help in spreading the word and getting our Mentoring Program off the ground!
Did you know:
62% of mentored students improve their self-esteem?
48% of mentored students improve their grades?
46% of mentored students are less likely to get into drugs?
(according to One to One Partnership)
Why Mentor? Because you can positively impact the life of a child. Your influence can help build a student’s self-worth and show them that someone cares. They may have a better chance of being successful and productive with your support.
What does a Mentor do? A Mentor commits to meet once a week for the entire school year and will become a friend and role model to a student. A Mentor may find themselves sharing: breakfast, lunch, homework, reading, sports, games, technology, art or other interests with their student.
Who can Mentor? This year, we are looking for men to serve as Mentors to at-risk 4th and 5th grade young boys. They need to be committed individuals willing to work one-on-one with a student for one hour a week during school hours. Training will be provided.
What now? If you are interested in learning more, please contact Alison Busch, Mentor Program Coordinator, at alisonNbusch@gmail.com or 704-258-5664.
