A half an hour a week can make a profound difference in the life of a child! Mentors model enthusiasm for learning, strength during trying situations, empathy for others, encouragement to stay motivated when things are tough, and the understanding that perceived failures are actually opportunities for growth.
Pinellas County provides mentor workshops to provide information on PCS mentoring policies and procedures, effective listening skills, goal setting, communication skills and relationship building. For more information on Mentor Workshops offered by Pinellas County Schools click HERE.
To get involved in this rewarding program, contact our Community Liaison Lisa Cavanaugh at (727) 588-4730 ext. 2014 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
