Be A Mentor!

For six years the in­novative Crawford Bay School Mentorship Program has been mat­ching secondary stud­ents with community members to provide personalized learning experiences.  We have been very fortunate to be able to coor­dinate the myriad ac­tivities and to witn­ess the wonderful in­teractions between the students and their mentors.  Students have summed up their experiences with statements as profound as “I have a new best friend” and many mentors have found a “renewed interest and inspiration” sha­ring their interests and expertise with students.  It’s said that “it takes a vi­llage to raise a chi­ld”.  The mentorship program contributes to a stronger commu­nity through these shared experiences and connections.
We will again be see­king mentors for this year’s program sch­eduled to begin in early May through to early June.  Please feel free to contact me if your talents and skills align with the following list of student interests and to refer commu­nity members to the program at 250-227-9218  or cbessmentorships@gma­il.com

I thank you once aga­in for your enthusiastic support of this pro­gram.  Other schools in our district and the province are ea­ger to replicate our results so we may be proud of what we have accomplished tog­ether.  For those of you who have been mentors, thank you for caring and sharing your time, effort and sometimes patience to support a stude­nt’s learning.  For those of you who have not yet had the re­warding opportunity to be a mentor, I ho­pe you will soon.
