The Value of Mentoring

Update: August 20, 2020: The Street School Mentoring program is currently on hold due to COVID-19 and Tulsa Public Schools District policy. Street School will begin the school year on Monday, August 31st in distance learning for the first nine-weeks. In October, Tulsa Public Schools will evaluate current pandemic conditions within the District to determine if students will remain in distance learning after nine-weeks or return to school in-person. When District policy changes and outside guests are allowed into our building, the mentor program will be re-instated.

Mentoring helps because it guarantees a young person that there is someone who cares about them. A child is not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges. Simple things that seem easy or straightforward to you may appear to be a complete mystery to a young person.  Mentors provide mentees with an experienced friend who is there to help in any number of situations.

Street School has 48+ mentors that come one hour each week and meet with their assigned student.  The mentor coordinators match mentors and mentees so a beneficial relationship can form.  Mentors are provided with training and access to help.
