Hi, Mentor ! We hope you are having a happy and safe Fourth of July! Just sending a quick newsletter to let you know about some upcoming Mentor Training as we prepare to support the 25 - 30 new students who will be entering our program in August.

There are a few of you on our mail list who have recently applied to serve as a mentor with Take Stock in Children but have not yet attended training. Please take a look at the dates and times below and let us know by simply selecting one of the time slots most convenient for you. You can also reply to this email or call our Mentor Coordinator, Gina Granger, at (813) 794-2134 to reserve a time slot or if you have any questions.

Mentors who have already attended training are also welcome at any of these sessions...the more, the merrier! Mentors with experience in our program bring a wealth of knowledge and advice to the table that will certainly help new mentors-in-training and add to the discussion. We hope to see you there!

All training sessions will be held at the Pasco County School District Headquarters in Building 2 located at 7227 Land O' Lakes Blvd, Land O' Lakes, FL 34638.
Any volunteers, including our mentors, who enter Pasco County Schools must submit an annual volunteer application and background check. July 1st was the start of the new year for the school district and so all of you who are continuing on as mentors with our program or just coming on board as new mentors, must click the link below to complete the Pasco County Schools Volunteer Application again. When school is back in session, the district staff who process these volunteer applications will be extremely busy so we urge you to complete this as soon as possible. Without an updated, approved district volunteer application on file, you will not be allowed to enter the school to meet with your student.
Best wishes for a happy and safe Independence Day, Mentor !
