Career Mentor Program
Can you think of a mentor who influenced your future for the better? You could be that mentor to a high school student! In the years to come, our goal is to connect every 11th grade student in NKC Schools with a mentor who can share their interests and hard-won wisdom as they guide students through the challenges of career preparation. Volunteer mentors coach students in soft skills and meet monthly with them to discuss meaningful topics. Today, more than ever, our students need a "village" of support as they take the next steps toward their future.
Do you know someone who could be a great mentor for our students? Juniors across the district have the opportunity to meet with a dedicated adult mentor on a monthly basis to support their future goals. Check out the video to see the impact our mentors made last year!
More than 80 mentors are needed for the 2023-2024 school year with a commitment of just one hour per month. The deadline to register was Friday, September 15. If you are looking for other ways to get involved, please contact Shannon C. Shelton.
