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.
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 Catholic schools in the Chippewa area. The program operates September-May, during regular school hours.
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.
