TeamMates

TeamMates is a school based adult to student mentoring program. This program provides a young person with support, friendship, and a positive example.  The mentor and student meet one time a week at the school during the school day.  Multiple scholarship opportunities are available for each student who graduates high school as a TeamMate.  The purpose is to help young people reach their full potential.  Matches meet on the school grounds, during the school day.  Adult mentors go through a solid screening and background check process, along with training to ensure the safety and integrity of the program.  Our school district started last year with the 6th grade class and have 30 matches continuing this school year.  The district is continuing to offer this program to ALL incoming 6th grade students.

TeamMates is a strengths based organization.  Strength based relationships have a profound impact on student development and performance.  Through the Gallup strengths partnership, mentors and mentees can better understand and maximize the unique human potential that each person brings to their roles in school and life. While the rest of the world focuses on what is wrong with kids, TeamMates focuses on what is right with them.  Applying strengths through this program benefits student mentees.  Students...
