Become an Eagle Mentor
Get Involved: Become an Eagle Mentor
It only takes a few hours a month to make a huge difference in the life of a child. Mentoring helps kids stay off drugs, out of gangs and in school. Mentors help kids think BIG so they can fulfill their dreams. The best part is, you’ll not only see what it does for them, and you’ll feel what it does for YOU. Consider becoming an Eagle Mentor for an elementary or intermediate student TODAY.
One Child. One Hour. A Lifetime of Difference……BE ONE
ONE CHILD: Every child deserves the opportunity to experience a one-on-one relationship with a caring adult. Eagle Mentors uses a detailed and thorough application and screening process to match mentors and students.
ONE HOUR: Mentors commit to one hour a week or at least every other week, for a year. Consistency and long-term commitment help foster trust and confidence in the mentor-mentee relationship. Other characteristics of an Eagle Mentor are a willingness to listen and be a friend and desire to be a positive role model in the life of a child.
A LIFETIME OF DIFFERENCE: A positive self-image is crucial to academic achievement. How we view ourselves determines our goals, behaviors, and responses to others. Students need to know someone cares about them. A mentor provides young people with emotional and social support, friendship, compassion, positive reinforcement and constructive example.
