Make a Difference. Become a Mentor.
Loveland City Schools have developed a mentoring program that is designed to connect individual students with both adults and model older students interested in establishing an on-going supportive relationship. The goal of the program is to assist students in making healthy choices, stimulate their interest in academic endeavors, as well as nurture their self-esteem, personal development and leadership skills.
What you can do as a mentor:
- Provide praise & encouragement for successes
- Provide feedback regarding desired behaviors
- Help problem solve situations that arise at school
Children with positive role models are more likely to succeed than those who lack such aspirational figures in their life. By volunteering as a mentor, you will start at-risk youth on the right path that leads to academic achievement and habits for success later in life.
“99% of youth involved in mentoring programs are attending school, avoiding drugs/alcohol, avoiding contact with juvenile court and avoiding teen pregnancy.”
Types of Mentoring:
- Older student to younger student through the Loveland Leadership Initiative
- Adult to student in a school setting
- Adult to group of students in a school setting
