Mentoring program expands with partners









Mentoring program expands with partners

As part of a systemwide initiative launched in January, nearly 50 community members have answered the call to serve as away-from-school mentors and role models for young men of color whose attendance and behavioral choices are limiting their academic success.

Mentors work with students on building self-esteem, learning to communicate with adults, dealing with peer pressure, developing respect for self and others, and becoming young men of distinction. Mentor training is provided by the school system.

If you have an interest in community-based mentoring, contact GCPS’ Community Liaison Office at 678-301-7321, or call your local school to learn about mentoring and tutoring opportunities during the school day.
