A mentor is a caring, compassionate adult who chooses to devote their time to a young person, offering them support, guidance and encouragement. One of the key and proven success factors of Booker Promise is the role of the mentor. They understand that the commitment of becoming a mentor can change a child’s life while helping them grow personally. Can you remember adults who paid attention to you; who believed in you; and who guided you during your childhood? These individuals served as mentors. Wouldn’t you like to have someone think of you as their life-changing, trusted mentor?
If you can donate ONE hour per week, you can change a life by helping a child build a solid foundation of values, establish goals, improve their academic and life skills, while developing their self-esteem and confidence.
Mentoring sessions range from 45-60 minutes and occur virtually or on-site at Booker High School. The days and times of mentoring sessions are arranged between the mentor and mentee depending on their individual schedules and classes. As a result, mentoring is convenient for both students and mentors.
