Make a Difference. Be a Mentor.
Have you ever had troubles of your own and now want to help others so they do not make the same mistakes?
Are you a dedicated individual?
Are you ready for a life-changing experience?
Then this is the organization for you.
Tarleton Mentors is an organization that connects college students to the local foster home. For a minimum (more is preferred) of one hour once a week, you will be able to form a bond with a child and help them grow from their past. Just being a friend and being able to listen, allowing the child to vent, or to play basketball or football with the children is monumental for them.
You will work with children from all walks of life and hear some intense stories. Through this program, you will have the chance to be a steady and stable person in a child's life, something that may be rare and hard to find for them.
There are various aspects to mentor and work with such as:
- Homework help
- And so much more!
Students are needed to make this happen, bringing any and all skills to enhance the program. If there is something you are really passionate about and strive to make a difference, let us know and we will try to incorporate it into the program.
The main thing that is stressed is dedication. At least one hour, once a week. More is desired, but the very bare minimum is one hour, once a week. Each student that is participating in the organization will be checked up on, to make sure that they are attending the minimum requirements.
Everyone understands a crazy, busy schedule and if by some chance you cannot make the one hour, once a week requirement, DO NOT just quit coming without warning. Do inform the house parent, club officers and especially the child you are working with.
