School Is More Than Just A Building.
It’s more than a place where students learn. School is where students feel heard, where they build connections, where they can be inspired. School is where you can make a difference.
WHAT CAN YOU DO IN JUST AN HOUR A WEEK?
More than you think. This year, students are more likely than ever to become discouraged about school and learning. By volunteering as a mentor in a BPS classroom, you can provide students with the extra socio-emotional support they need to feel more connected and build the skills and confidence to improve their academic achievement.
One hour of personal attention each week can be life-changing for students, especially at a time when they’re likely to feel disconnected from their classmates. Whether you read together or work on math problems, talk about professions and career options, or simply practice social skills, your time together helps prepare students for a lifetime of success.
