Y Mentor - Powdersville YMCA
A mentor is a suitable adult role model committed to serve as a guide, advisor, and a friend for a designated stduent. Mentors are mature, caring individuals who are genuinely intereseted in helping students strive to meet their goals and meet their full potential. Each Mentor is fully trained and screend by Y Mentor ASD1 through the Powdersville YMCA. This is a program approved by Anderson School District One.
Mentors meet one-on-one with students for approximately 30 minutes each week throughout the school year in a supervised location at the school. These meetings will take place during regular school hours, before school, or after school depending on the mentor's and the student's schedule and availability. Time will be spent having breakfast or lunch together, reading, playing games, or simply talking about topics that interest the student.
Parent/guardian permission is required for student participation in the program.
If you would like for your child to participate in this program, contact your student's designated school counselor.
