Parents and Students
Let a child make a difference in your life.
Mentors are concerned adults who commit their time, skills, and creativity to help young students achieve their potential through consistent one-to-one relationships. A mentor is a role model who takes an active interest in the life of a student and is committed to serving as a guide, friend, counselor, and/or coach. Mentors range in age from 18 to 81. An interest in the life of a child is more important than age.
Mentoring can take the form of tutoring, homework assistance or recreational type activities. The goal is for you to establish a relationship of trust and caring with a child and hopefully make some significant difference his or her life.
At Red Clay we offer two types of mentoring programs.
Social Mentoring This type of mentoring is loosely structured and it is up to the mentor/mentee pair to decide at each session if they want to read a book, draw a picture, do a puzzle, play catch etc.
Academic Mentoring This is a structured program where the mentor/mentee pair will have a lesson plan (designed by a teacher) for each session. Although there are social elements included, the main focus is on improving academic performance and confidence.
Contact your school office to see if they have mentoring program. Click here for a listing of Red Clay schools. A mentoring coordinator will help you with the paper work and arrange a mentoring program for you that is aligned with your skills and interests. The mentoring coordinators are always available for ongoing support and guidance. Click here for information on Reading ASSIST
