Mentoring a Difference

. July 30, 2015.

You could make a child’s life a whole lot brighter as a volunteer for Children’s Mentoring Connection’s school-based program.

This school year, CMC will host mentoring programs at Jacobs Primary School, Bigelow Hill Intermediate School, Donnell Middle School, Glenwood Middle School and for 4th and 5th-graders at Cory Rawson Schools. During the programs – some of which are one-on-one while others are group-based – mentors meet with kids about an hour once a week for 28 weeks throughout the school year.

Jennifer Swartzlander, executive director of CMC, said their goal is to recruit50 new mentors during August, with the programs beginning in mid-September.

CMC prepares the activities and provides snacks for the programs.

To attend one of the school-based programs, a child must attend one of the schools offering them, but community-based mentoring programs are also available. Children’s Mentoring Connection has supported children through mentoring opportunities in Hancock County for 40 years.
