Greater Clark County Public School Mentor
Hope Collaborative is currently placing mentors in the following Greater Clark County Public Schools: Parkview Middle School, River Valley Middle School, Charlestown Middle School, New Washington Middle/High School, and Parkwood Elementary School
Hope Collaborative mentors are caring adults that devote time to a young person. They help young people to achieve their potential and discover their strengths. Mentors promote 4 primary messages to their mentees: stay in school, respect yourself, respect for others and healthy relationships. Our mentors are assigned to a group of up to four students that they meet with for one hour on a weekly basis at their school during school hours.
Mentors are asked to commit to serving with their students for one school year. Mentor and mentees are given the opportunity to recommit to the group at the end of each school year and move with their group thought grades over multiple years.
