For those volunteers who only have a short time they can commit (7-8 weeks), Go Girls! or Game On group mentoring programs are great opportunities.
About Game On
Game On provides a group of boys ages 11 to 14 with information to make informed choices about living health lifestyles. Game On includes seven 75-minute core sessions where participants do fun activities, eat healthy snacks and talk about growing up. Game On sessions take place after school hours.
About Go Girls!
Go Girls is a group mentoring program for girls ages 12 to 14. The program is held over seven 90-minute sessions after school or in the evening. The goal of Go Girls is to provide young women and girls with tools and support through a mentoring relationship to make informed choices about active living, balanced eating and positive self-esteem.
Group programs will be running throughout the school year. Please contact Mentoring Coordinator Kailee Kirkland for more information.

Go Back to School and Help a Child Go Forward
The In School Mentoring program wrapped up for another year this June. Mentees and mentors met for one hour a week at the mentee’s school. During their time together they could play games, bake, make crafts, play sports, or just talk. Lasting friendships and great memories are made over the course of the school year!
If you only have one hour a week to share with a mentee, consider becoming an In School Mentor. This program starts up each year in September at local elementary schools. Please contact Denine Rodger if you are interested in more information about In-School Mentoring (adults 18+) or Teen In-School Mentoring programs.
