Mentoring Month

We didn't want to let National Mentoring Month pass without recognizing our very own Brenda, who mentors a middle school student for Lutheran Social Services. Brenda finds mentoring to be very rewarding, and we very much appreciate her for doing it!  In LSS's program, each student works with his/her mentor to decide what to do when they meet. Mentors and students may be involved in a variety of activities, such as working in the computer lab, reading a book, playing basketball at the gym, eating lunch, playing games, completing art projects, or just hanging out.  Many of these meetings happen over the mentor's lunch break.

Currently, there are more than 300 local students waiting for a mentor, and LSS's goal is to get 100 of them off of the waiting list by the end of this month. For more information on the LSS mentoring program, click here.  You can also email Brenda or call her at our office to get her perspective on the mentoring experience!
