Help a Wizard Make Magic

With just an hour of your time each week, you can dramatically change the life of a child who needs an adult role model. Westchase Elementary is looking for mentors for this school year. Can you lend a hand?

Mentors are special volunteers committed to helping students experience greater success academically, socially, mentally and physically. Mentors help enhance students’ school experience.
 
A mentor is a trusted guide or friend – a caring, responsible adult who provides access to people, places and things outside the student’s routine environment. A mentor is a positive role model and a good listener. Mentors are persistent, committed and patient. They are the key to unlocking bright futures!

Mentors and their students meet once a week during the school day. This scheduled meeting lasts approximately 30 minutes to one hour. In addition the mentor may choose to meet with the student during his or her lunch time.

Positive male role models are always in high demand.

Mentors must complete a SERVE form, a mentor contract and an introduction form. They must also sign in at the office and wear a nametag upon arrival.

Just think about it! You too can become that awesome person in someone’s life! If you are thinking of mentoring a child this year, we can never have too many!
