The Value of Mentoring

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.
