Mentoring matches meet one-on-one, at school, one day per week, for 30-minutes. The program operates September-May, during regular school hours.
Mentoring provides an opportunity for [adult] mentors and [student] mentees to connect over common interests and experiences, build a relationship, and support each other in times of need. This solid foundation enables mentors to empower their mentees to be their very best self!
Students may be referred to the program as potential mentees by a parent/guardian, school staff, or sometimes as self-referral. Interested students apply to be a mentee in the program. Mentee applications are screened by program staff for fit, and as necessary, mentee students meet with program staff to go over program rules and expectations before a final decision on placement in the program are made.
Parent/Guardian, please click on the above link to complete the new mentee application form. Once your application is received, a member of the Mentor Chippewa program staff will be in touch with you regarding the next steps in the process.
School staff, please click on the above link to complete the school partner referral form to refer a potential mentee student to the Mentor Chippewa program. Once received, staff will review and reach out if there are any questions.
