Step-By-Step Mentoring Program

Caring and Growing, together 
 
Mission Statement: To foster the maturation and personal growth of students exhibiting problematic or high-risk academic or social behaviors by providing a relationship with a caring adult who works to help youth achieve their potential.
Program Progress

The district implemented the Step-By-Step (staff-to-student) Mentoring Program at the high school level. Thirteen mentors and thirteen students are currently participating in the program. The group had a pizza and bowling party to kick off the program. Students and staff had a great time getting to know each other with a lot of laughter and smiles. In order to become a mentor, there is an application process and training.

At this time we would like to invite any community members who may be interested in volunteering at the school to be a mentor to a student, as well as remind staff members who have not yet been trained of the opportunity. Please contact the coordinator, Tara Sackett, at 865-4116 ext. 3130 if you are interested or would like more information. All Walton Central School District staff and community members are encouraged to participate.
