Community Service Opportunities

  •  

    Join the Parmer Lane Elementary Mentor Program!

     

    Our mentor program is the perfect way to give back to the community and help a student in need. National research shows that it is important for youth to have at least three non-parent adults whom they can trust. Without this adult support, young people are more likely to engage in risk-taking behaviors. I hope that you will consider joining the staff in this great community service opportunity. The only requirements are to spend a minimum of 30 minutes with your mentee weekly and to make every possible effort to attend our after school activities with your mentee (after school activities will be held once a month from 3:05-3:35).

     

    Things you can do as a mentor:

    • Help set goals and monitor progress 
    • Encourage mentee involvement in school activities and programs (Ex. Student council, job corps)
    • Provide encouragement
    • Co-pilot for smart choices
    • Provide unconditional appreciation of uniqueness
    • Navigate to find talents and self-esteem
    • Be a role model for positive self-talk 
    • MANY MORE! 😊
