Align Mentor Program

What does a mentor do?

  • Align Mentors are professionals from our community that are interviewed and go through a Level II Background Check before they are matched with up to 5 students.

    They come to school for one (1) hour each week during the school year to meet with their student.

    Align Mentors utilize curriculum to implement lessons that elevate students through character development, self-esteem building, encouraging academic success, and coaching leadership abilities.

    They are trained in Trauma Informed Care, setting realistic expectations, connecting and finding common ground, active listening, expectations, best practices, and setting boundaries.

    Align Mentors build long-lasting relationships with students.
