Social Emotional Learning – What We Hope to Achieve

By having you, the mentor, implement these 3 facets of the mentoring experience, you are helping to build the student into being a well rounded individual.

1. MENTORING – To build genuine, impactful relationships between students and our volunteer mentors.

2. EARLY LITERACY – To improve students’ understanding of the fundamental building blocks of early literacy.

3. SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT – To help students build a strong social-emotional foundation through self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making.

Primarily, volunteers are members of the RSVP program (retired and senior volunteer program) 55 and over, but the program is open to all volunteers.
