The majority of our students are at schools that are ranked in the bottom 10% of schools nationwide, and 1 in 4 high schoolers is college-ready. With a commitment of as little as 1 hour a week you can make a difference in a youth's life through our Covenant Group small group mentoring at Bresee Foundation.
What a mentoring session will look like: We will have some large group and/or small group ice breakers followed by discussion with 4-5 high schoolers on peer pressure, school, friends, etc. Journaling and arts & crafts are included every week. Field trips.
Lessons and discussion questions will be provided.
What: Covenant Group small group mentoring
When: 1 hour per week for one school year (Sept. 2010-May 2011, Most likely Tuesdays 5:30-6:30)
