We need YOU to be a Mentor!
A unique opportunity exists in Humble ISD for specialized volunteers willing to commit to an ongoing, school-based relationship with one child who would benefit from having a special friend. These volunteers, known as Mentors, work with school staff to schedule time (usually 30 - 45 minutes per week) to meet with their student.
Mentoring can often make a big difference in a child's life by:
Keeping him/her in school
Improving academic skills
Introducing him/her to new resources
Providing support for new behaviors, attitudes and ambitions
To children, mentoring means having a trusted friend who cares about them and listens to them; a role model they can look up to; someone who will help them achieve their dreams. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, read below for some frequently asked questions. Click here to see the mentoring handbook.
What is a mentor?
A mentor is a good listener, a role model, a friend. Mentors create opportunities for students to set goals, develop skills, and achieve their maximum potential.
What are a mentor's responsibilities?
A mentor comes to school, usually once a week for 30 to 45 minutes, to meet with an assigned student. A mentor works with school staff to assist the child with social and academic needs. School staff can make suggestions about activities, projects or topics to address.
What if a mentor has a scheduling conflict?
If the conflict is known in advance, the student will understand the need to reschedule a visit. If the conflict is an emergency, school staff will be happy to communicate the change to the student and his/her teacher.
What if my student discloses sensitive information?
School staff are always available to intervene when complex situations arise. The Mentor should be patient and work to establish a level of trust with their student.
