Community-Based Mentoring

Studies show that successful mentoring programs help students develop social skills, improve their school achievement and graduation rates, build character, and many other benefits.

GCPS has proactively developed a Community-Based Mentoring program to connect caring adults in the community with male and female students in grades 4 through 12 to provide guidance, encouragement, and support to help them become successful young adults, both in and out of school.

While school counselors, teachers, and family members all play a role in keeping students in school and learning, the involvement of a community mentor can make a meaningful connection.

Our Community-Based Mentoring Program for Girls is scheduled to begin January 2018! Interested in becoming a mentor? Please call: 770-682-8086.
