Many times we focus on the student stories and forget that mentors lives are changed, too. Mentors learn through interactions, experiences, and on-going training we provide, as shown in these emails I received.
“That was a great meeting this morning, very useful as we interact in many relationships! I wish I would have had even that much training for other mentoring I have done!”

“I really enjoyed the class you facilitated with Brian. With my unique life experience and situations I thought I already knew SO MUCH about this topic. I brought home NEW INFORMATION and skills from this training. I was so happy I took the time to take the class. It was SO WORTH IT !!!!”

Nancy provides the critical backbone of labor, coordination and communication for Partners for Schools. She understands the heart beat and passion of our school leaders and teachers. “After raising our 4 kids, I know it just does not stop there. It really takes many individuals and a community to support kids, families and schools, and I love connecting the critical dots. Every child can benefit from a caring adult mentor”
