Lunch Pals Mentoring Program
Lunch Pals is an incredible opportunity for volunteers to meet and mentor students once a week for 30 minutes over the student's lunch. Students are identified by school personnel who believe the child could benefit from a mentoring relationship. Some students are facing social, economic, family hardships, academic challenges, or are just at a point where they will especially benefit from a positive and encouraging adult who spends time with them. Mentors are accessible, open to listening, and non-judgmental. They build meaningful connections and trusting relationships with students.
Lunch Pals Program Goals:
- Support the student's social and emotional development
- Support academic gains and growth
- Improve school involvement and attendance
- Provide and exceptional experience for Lunch Pals and their students
