Mentoring/Role Models

All children benefit from strong, healthy role models in class ( that being you and your staff) as well as in the home.  Perhaps you have a child who is in need of a mentor or role model. Numerous studies show that when we give children strong role models they are less likely to engage in anti-social behavior and more likely to graduate from high school. One particular study revealed that children with an active mentor were 32% less likely to hit someone, 46% less likely to start using illegal drugs and 52% less likely to skip school.  We can create lasting change by starting in the early elementary grades with strong mentorship programs that focus on literacy.
