Lunch Pals is a mentoring program designed to provide students with an additional presence of a caring, consistent and committed adult in their lives. Each student is identified by school personnel as a child who could benefit from a mentoring relationship, and is often facing social and academic challenges.
As a mentor, you are making a difference! In the life of a student, in the climate of our school district, in the future of this community, and in your personal enrichment, you are creating positive and impacting change. Thank you for giving of your time, and most importantly of yourself, to instill a positive outlook, one child at a time.

Celebrate January as National Mentoring Month!
We celebrate the contributions of all those who cultivate a supportive environment for the next generation. Every day, mentors help our students face the challenges of growing into adulthood, setting a positive example and sharing their time, knowledge and experience. We continue to strive towards involving more adults as mentors for our students.
You can help!
Have you had a mentor? Are you a mentor yourself? Share the story of your experiences on social media to encourage others to become involved. Not involved yet? Now is the time!
Remember, mentoring builds relationships that are as meaningful for the mentor as they are for the young person being mentored!
