Mentors receive training in Street School’s Mentor Program. Applicant’s receive initial training by participating in Tulsa Public School’s “Going To Bat For Tulsa Kids” program, and continued training through Street School. There is a background check, but is at no cost to you. You are paired with a student by the coordinator for this program who will meet with you to determine the best student match.
Mentors spend one hour per week for each week that Street School is in session. Available times are Monday through Thursday 9:00 am, 10:00 am, noon, or 1:00 pm. You serve a a mentor during the length of the school year.
There are no costs to being a mentor. Just your time to listen and be a positive influence on a student. Tutoring is not expected. We have a tutoring program specifically designed to meet the needs of students.
Mentors do not transport students, and must stay on or within walking distance of Street School property. Mentors do not stay in contact with their mentee when school is out, but this does happen sometimes under certain circumstances, and under direct supervision from the volunteer coordinator.
