GROTON SCHOOL-BASED MENTORING PROGRAM
Our program has been in place sine 1999 and we provide direct mentoring services to approximatly 120 students per year. Our goal is to find a mentor for every student that has a need. There is always a waiting list so volunteers are always needed.
This program is strictly a school-based program and all mentors meet with mentees (the student participating in the program) during the school day in a common area of the school. Mentoring takes place for aproximately 1 hour per week for the the entire school year. Mentors make a one year commitment to their mentee but many stay until graduation.
The links at the left will provide you with a complete look at our program, our mentors, and our progress.
