Last fall we started our pilot mentoring program called MentorSuccess here at CCA, and are continuing at the school again this year.
The heart behind our program is to create success in the student’s academic experience, as well as in their relationships with others. We work with elementary students (Kindergarten-Fifth grade), because we believe that teaching kids leadership and character skills at an early age can truly change their lives. The teachers here at CCA are already implementing the same growth-mindset concepts our program focuses on, so we can partner with them and expand on what the students are already learning in class. We work with the students on things like teamwork, decision making, empathy, conflict resolution, and much more! We take these complex ideas/skills and train mentors how to easily help the students understand them through reading, games, and other activities.
We believe the most important part of our program is the confidence each student gains from having a committed adult invest in them. We create a safe environment for each student to be able to express themselves and learn how to be better Christ-followers.
We are currently looking for additional mentors for this amazing program. Would you prayerfully consider how the Lord would use you? Mentoring sessions operate during the students lunch times (11:20am-12:20pm) and in the after school program (3-5pm). This is an ideal way to help a child in our school community!
