Forsyth County Schools Mentoring Program

crayonLooking for a chance to volunteer and make a difference in someone’s life?

Forsyth County Schools, GA are always looking for mentors for the students. Mentors are required to attend a training session and FCS asks that they commit to thirty minutes per week for the school year. Here is the upcoming training flyer: FAll13TrgFlyer1

A mentor is a volunteer that works to provide a young person with a special, encouraging relationship that will hopefully become a foundation for success in a child’s life.

Through this relationship, a mentor attempts to foster the child’s self-worth, motivation, coping skills, and strength of character.

Put very simply, a mentor lends a child friendly support and a listening ear. This can be done by just talking to the child, reading a book to or with the child, playing a game, or doing an art activity. This gives children a chance to experience some success in a caring environment removed from the regular classroom setting.

Mentoring is a unique way that you can help children and give back to your community.  One person can MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
