Toombs Family Connection Begins Recruitment for School-Based Mentoring Program

Posted on by

Toombs Family Connection is happy to announce that we have partnered with Toombs County Schools, Vidalia City Schools, and a group from the 2014-15 Leadership Toombs-Montgomery class to begin a Mentoring Program for our at-risk students in grades 5 through 12.
We are looking for mentors in the community who are willing to commit to one weekly appointment with a mentee who has been identified by the school counselor.
A one-time, two-hour training session is scheduled for January 27, 2015. The first session of this program will run from the training session until the end of the school year. A second session will run from the beginning of next school year through December. Mentors may sign up for one or both sessions.
Participation in the Mentoring Program requires a national background check, the cost of which is $52.75. You can help us by signing up to serve as a mentor or by contributing financially to cover this expense for other mentors in the program.
If you are interested in participating in this program, contact Paige Williamson at 912-245-2542 or by email at familyconnection9@gmail.com.
