Fair Street IB World School in Gainesville, Ga., is in search of male mentors for its elementary students. Fair street’s principal, William Campbell, said the goal is to make a connection with one student every week on a consistent basis. As an example, Campbell mentioned a possible connection could be having lunch or breakfast the student. The emphasis of the mentorship is placed on consistent presence in the child’s life through a weekly 30 minute to one hour interaction.
A basic class and helpful information for those interested will be provided by Center Point, a non profit based in Gainesville aimed to help strengthen relationships between students and family, about what a good mentor can do for their mentee. A video of the benefits between mentors and students, featuring Campbell, can be seen at the link below.
