Volunteer mentors establish relationships with students, meeting once a week during the school year. This partnership is designed to equip students with the tools for lifelong learning such as confidence, determination, problem solving, and goal setting. Tutors work individually or in small groups with students to help build English Language Arts, Math, and Science skills so that the students are able to fully develop their learning potential.
The mentoring program begun by Father Champlin at the inception of the Guardian Angel Society was expanded in 2012 to include a summer program “Building A Path to Success” which helped graduates of CAP prepare for the academic and personal challenges of junior high school.
TRAINING AND SUPPORT
Mentors & tutors attend one or two training sessions where the program goals, expectations and protocol are outlined. Additionally, personnel in each student’s school provide the mentors and tutors with support. Mentors & tutors must also complete VIRTUS “Protecting God’s Children” training.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor or tutor for the upcoming academic year, please contact the Guardian Angel Society office, at (315) 422-7218 or download the volunteer application or fill out the online form on our Volunteer page.
