The Mentoring Initiative gives 50 Ways members and Rockbridge-area citizens a chance to make a vital difference in our community, by stepping up to help our students and public schools. This small committee examines how our community serves its youngest citizens. Our initiative is aimed at promoting and fostering educational and social literacies, starting with
middle and high school kids.
We rely on local expertise to meet a variety of needs, ranging from attacking student hunger to leading enrichment classes in any specialty. The volunteer opportunities stretch from grant-writing to providing homework help, from staffing a breakfast kiosk to leading children in after-school exercise. We constantly seek volunteers with a variety of interests to step in and make a sturdy commitment. The hours for these assignments range from early morning to after-school.
We’ve designed a signup system that allows you to choose the volunteer commitment that fits you.
