Learn How to Become a Mentor with POWER 4 Youth
2012-05-31 · By Editor
POWER 4 Youth will host an information meeting on Thursday, June 14 at 6:30 p.m. for prospective volunteers interested in working with the academic mentoring program for middle school students. The meeting will be held at 607 E. 3rd Street (at Atlantic), one of the six community sites POWER 4 Youth operates.
“I am really enthused as we begin training mentors for the new school year. We look forward to serving more youth from the community than ever before, but that means we will also need more volunteers.” states Val Parker, Executive Director.
“Learning about the program now, before summer begins, helps make it easy to get started as soon as school starts in September. The meeting is no-obligation—so we invite anyone interested in finding out about mentoring to attend.”
The program is looking for adults who can meet one-on-one with a youth at the supervised locations to assist with academic help while building a trusting mentor relationship with a young person. Training is provided at no cost; the program is free and open to all adults and students.
