CV Mentors, a program designed to connect middle school students to staff mentors, seeks to build lasting relationships through consistent, caring contact. Mentors and mentees will meet weekly to set goals, monitor grades, and tackle school and life issues as they arise. Importantly, mentors work closely with families in a partnership to strengthen the home-school connection. The mentor relationship follows the student through all four years of high school.

Any student in grades 7-8 would benefit from a mentor. Here are just some of the many benefits mentees reported from working with their mentors. CV Mentors brings me…
