Pair up with a child at a local school.
Make a difference in the life of a student.
. . . and maybe yours as well.
As part of Buckhead Church's efforts to help at-risk children in Atlanta, you have a chance to mentor an elementary student at KIPP: Woodson Park Academy, a Title 1 Atlanta Public School three miles west of Georgia Tech.
How do I start mentoring?
Submit your information to mentor next school year.
A caring adult makes a difference in a child's life. Mentoring builds self-esteem, improves academic performance, positively influences attitudes, models citizenship, and expands horizons. You can make this kind of a difference in a child's life! And you might be surprised by the impact this relationship has on you!
Mentors commit to at least one one-hour visit a month from October through May. Once approved (i.e., once application, background check, and training are complete), each mentor is paired with an elementary student, and a set time for visits during the school day is established.
To guide the mentor-student time, mentors are equipped with a monthly guide that covers a virtue and offers games and activities. Sometimes mentors help their students with schoolwork.
We're here to help.
All mentors must attend a training session and complete our background check before being paired with a student. Trainings typically occur during the month of September.
