Become a Mentor to Our Scholars
Columbia Public Schools has partnered with various community organizations to establish an effortless method for individuals to become mentors to scholars within the school system, offering crucial support and a sense of belonging. Research highlights the substantial positive effects of quality mentoring relationships on young individuals in personal, academic, and professional aspects. Mentoring fosters personal growth, development, and access to opportunities, counteracting that one in three young people lack this vital resource. Embracing a mentorship role can transform both the student's and mentor's lives, with its profound and diverse impact evident in inspiring stories of growth and connection.
