Overview

Mentoring teenagers is different from mentoring 7-8 year olds where a Mentor is assigned a student.

The Tribe Mentoring Program is driven by establishing relationships and meets a huge need to assist faculty and staff by being a “presence” during the two lunch hours in the cafeteria and commons from 11:30-1:00 each school day.

In addition to being an adult presence, mentors casually (organically) get to know staff, teachers, and students. As relationships develop through building a bridge of friendship, each mentor’s “relationship of influence” will begin because s/he will have earned a foundation to be a role model, a life coach, a tutor, a mentor and friend.

Future Plans

We are only limited by our own creativity in meeting the needs of these students! Some plans in the works include:

  • Jobs Program: help students learn how dress, go through an interview successfully, and understand what it means to be a hard worker and valuable employee
  • Teacher Aides & Assistant Coaches
  • Lunch Meetings: coordinate special speakers to talk about key life skills and career paths
  • Leadership Retreats: leadership retreats that take place outside of school hours to assist with college visits and the application process

We are creating a program that Hall High Seniors will be proud to add to their Warrior yearbook profile: The Tribe Mentoring Program. We invite you to join our Mentoring Team!
