Mentoring Program
Have you heard about the "Mentor" Program at Augusta Circle? This program identifies students who need extra encouragement and support. Volunteers are matched with a student with whom they work during the school year. Mentoring programs have been shown to raise student achievement and academic success, along with enhancing student confidence, behavior, and self-esteem.

Mentors are asked to commit 30 minutes per week to
meet with the student during breakfast or lunch. In addition, all mentors are asked to participate in a one-hour training session provided by Mentor Upstate to prepare them for their role.

If you are interested in volunteering as a mentor this year, please contact Mrs. Rushing here for information on upcoming training sessions.  

Thank you and we look forward to having you on our team!
