The mentors will come from all walks of life, i.e., retired educators, business community, retirees, and college students. Anywhere we can recruit able, suitable mentors. We will screen all mentors and will have a criminal background check on all participants. We expect the mentor to commit to one hour per week for the entire school year. Mentors take on the responsibility for, and commit to, having a positive impact on the critical developmental needs of their mentees.
We conduct educational workshops for mentors to learn strategies in:
Youth development for working with their mentees
Goal-Setting strategies, etc.
Mentors offer extracurricular activities for mentees to:
Learn about job/career choices
Experience life – expanding cultural activities
The Newton Mentoring, Inc., will begin placing mentors in the Newton County Schools. We have applications on file where you have expressed an interest in mentoring a child. To become a mentor, you must:
attend a 2 hour training session and pass a criminal background check.
Commit to spend at least one (1) hour per week with a child during the school year at the child’s school.
As in prior years we have a shortage of mentors, so your assistance is needed. We appreciate your interest in mentoring a child. Please review the training schedule and let us know if and when you will be available to attend a class. A fee of $17.00 to complete a criminal back ground check is accepted by cash.
We are looking forward to hearing from you!
Thank you for making a difference in a child’s life.
