Shelburne Community School needs mentors

Shelburne Community School is recruiting mentors for both of its mentoring programs.

Everybody Wins! is a statewide literacy mentoring program that matches adults with students in grades 2-4. Pairs meet Tuesday or Wednesday midday over lunch for reading and fun.

Connecting Youth is a district-wide mentoring program that matches adults with students in grades 5-8 for the school year. Pairs meet at school during the day for one hour, at a time that works around the mentor’s and student’s schedules. The goal of CY mentoring is for each adolescent to develop a strong healthy relationship with an adult.

Both programs provide training, ongoing support, and all the materials needed for a friendship to develop. The commitment is for one school year.

“This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity to come into the school, be engaged with our community, and truly make a difference in the life of one great kid,” said Alice Brown, who coordinates the CY program.

Adults interested in volunteering should contact Brown at abrown@cvsdvt.org or Diane Tanis, with the Everybody Wins! program at shelburne@everybodywinsvermont.org.
