Want to make a difference in a teenagers life? Had a mentor that impacted you? Know someone else who could help?
The academy programs at Woodside High School could use your help. The Academy is a small learning community made up of dedicated teachers working collaboratively. There are two academies at WHS the Business Technology Academy and the Green Academy. During their Junior year, students may request a Community Mentor that works with them on both academic & career goals. There are many students and their career interests are widespread, ranging from fashion and nursing to engineering and information technology.
I'm hoping that you, or someone that you know, might be able to participate in this program as a mentor. The commitment is approximately 2 hours per month, with most interactions via email and 3 face-to-face meetings over the course of the school year. The first meeting is scheduled for November 5th. If you or a colleague have any questions, please contact Faith Velschow, our mentor coordinator, via email at velschow@yahoo. com or via phone at 650-464-1162. Thanks for considering this.
