Connecting Youth Mentoring for middle school students has been thriving in our school community, but more volunteers are needed NOW to meet the number of requests for mentors! By spending just one hour each week, you can develop a one-on-one relationship with a middle school student that will bring rewards to both you and your young friend. Connecting Youth Mentoring serves 5th through 8th graders from Chittenden South who may want a little extra adult attention in their lives. Mentors and their student mentees spend a regularly scheduled hour together each week while school is in session. They participate in activities of their choosing on school grounds, including games, arts and crafts, sports, cooking, and conversation. On-going mentor training and support is provided.

You could be a mentor, too! If you are interested in learning more about the program, please contact a Mentoring coordinator.
