Do you have an interest in making a difference in a child’s life? Did you overcome obstacles as a young person? Do you have one hour per week to give to an at-risk young man? If you answered yes to any of these, then we need your help. Cotswold’s Mentoring Program currently has 23 Mentor/Mentee pairs. But we still have boys who need a positive male influence in their lives. Could you help us by sharing one hour of your time each week (or every other week) eating lunch, playing sports, reading, playing board games or goal setting with a child in need? Still not sure? Here are the thoughts of a few of our current mentors:
“To know that a small amount of my time could have a large impact on a young person’s life is very rewarding and motivating. It has been a true pleasure to see our relationship take off and to already hear about the impact its having is remarkable.”
“The overall experience was truly wonderful. The staff at the school made the logistics of the program seem effortless, which allowed me to focus on building the relationship with my mentee. The scheduling could not have been any easier.”
“Being a mentor is a very gratifying and rewarding experience. I cannot think of a better investment of my time.”
We will offer a Mentor training in February. Please contact Alison Busch with any questions or to get started!
