To quote PISD, "We know that every child needs the encouragement of a positive role model to achieve his or her potential. We are seeking individuals committed to fostering a relationship that will provide positive support and guidance to the leaders of tomorrow." Mentoring is a weekly commntiemnt of 30-60 minutes, as you spend time with your mentee during the school day. Consistency is key to the success of the program and to the children. They have even opened up "Vrtual Mentoring".
