Do you have an hour a month to make a difference in the life of a high school student? Looking for wonderful mentors who want to participate in the Academy of Business Mentoring Program (AOB) at Clairemont High School. They have now 60 slots available for our AOB 11th Grade Mentor Program (one-on-one) and 20 slots available for our 10th Grade Mentor Program (small groups to one mentor). The application window is now open and will close on Sept. 13th! Please see details below for more info and help spread the word.
*Here are a few quick AOB Mentor Program Fast Facts & Dates:
» Academy students are 10th and 11th graders at Clairemont High’s Academy of Business who volunteered to be in the program, knowing they would be matched with a mentor.
» Mentoring is a one-year commitment from September – June
» Mentor-student sessions are once per month (pre-scheduled dates) on Thursdays.
» Mentor-student sessions are held at Clairemont High and last for a duration of 1-2 hours; meeting agendas are already planned.
» Mentor-student sessions are held in late mornings or early afternoons: 10th grade sessions from 10:45am – 12 noon and 11th grade sessions from 12:45 pm – 2:15 pm.
» The Academy offers two types of mentoring (mentors must choose): one-to-one mentoring (11th gr) and small group mentoring (10th gr).
» In order to participate, mentors must (1) apply online (returning mentors have a shortened app), (2) complete a LiveScan fingerprinting, (3) attend orientation (see dates below or on web), and then you will be carefully matched to a mentee student or student group.
» Mentor Orientations (mandatory for all new mentors and returning that did not mentor in 2013-14) are on Wed Sept 14 or Wed Sept 21 from 9:00 am-10:30 am (choose one to attend)
» The first mentor-student session of the 2016-17 school year is Thu Sept 29.
