The Goal of Mentor Oconee is to facilitate healthy and sustainable relationships between students and adults in our community
Role & Commitment
Mentors pursue an intentional friendship with a student at a local school in an effort to influence positive behavior meeting with a student 30 minutes once a week during lunch or breakfast for the school year.
Students with a consistent role model have statistically shown improvements in academic performance and school attendance, a decrease in disciplinary issues, and tend to display an overall more positive attitude about life, school and future choices.
ATTEND A TRAINING
A one-hour training session is designed to inform and equip you with best practices for mentoring. Topics include: what it means to be a mentor, what to expect, and how to best relate to your student.
COMPLETE A BACKGROUND CHECK
Once training is complete, participants will receive an email with a link to complete the background check. There is no cost to the volunteer.
Do you want to learn more, find a training date, or have questions?
Please note: this application is not designed for parents who want to volunteer in their child's classroom, chaperone field trips, or other school level volunteering opportunities. Please contact your student's school for more information on those volunteer opportunities.
