Mentoring provides an opportunity for [adult] mentors and [student] mentees to connect over common interests, build a relationship, and support each other in times of need. This solid foundation enables mentors to empower their mentees to become the very best versions of themselves.
Adult members from the communities served apply to be a mentor with the program. Mentor applications are processed through a multi-phase approach by program staff and include, but are not limited to, a comprehensive background check, reference checks, and an in-person interview with program staff before a final decision on placement with the program is determined.
Mentoring matches meet one-on-one, one day per week, for 30-minutes. Mentor Chippewa currently serves students in grades Kindergarten-12 in the public and parochial schools in the Chippewa area. The program operates September-May, during regular school hours.
