Mentoring Program

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” ~ Gandhi

Interested in changing a life?  Can you donate a minimum of 30 minutes a week? Communities in Schools has an in-school mentor program in a school near you!

Join our Communities in Schools mentoring initiative, where friendship comes with purpose. Reflect on your journey—likely, someone special helped you along the way. Mentors understand the impact of positive influences. Our communities, parents, teachers, and mentors shape who we become.

Ordinary experiences hold extraordinary meaning for someone else. Dedicate your time to sit with a student, offering unconditional attention. For some, you might be the first adult providing such support. Share your unique perspective through a long-term, one-on-one friendship that builds self-esteem and guides positive choices. Your personal connection may inspire a child to stay in school, reject drugs, and avoid risky behavior.

How to become a mentor:

There is a special young person who is waiting to meet you. Becoming a mentor is a simple and rewarding way to give back to your community. Commit to a minimum of 30 minutes once a week, during school hours and on a school campus. You choose the campus and the age of student with whom you would like to work. Join the efforts of 100+ community members. Sharing your time with a student is a priceless way to make a positive change, it’s simple:


  • Written application Mentor-Application-PRINTABLE
  • Provide a copy of your driver’s license
  • Provide 2 references
  • Pass a criminal background check – Fill out the application – Criminal Background Check
  • Attend a training class and orientation to make your mentoring relationship a success
