The Mentoring Network

The Mentoring Network, Inc. serves five rural school districts (Nampa, Caldwell, Parma, Homedale, Vallivue) offering school-based mentoring to at-risk students, grades 1st-8th.

The goals of the mentoring program are to improve at-risk students' attendance, grades, and behaviors through friendship building with responsible, caring adults (18yrs. and older) who meet with their student one hour, once a week, on the school grounds, during the school year.

If you are looking for a way to show the impact of mentoring or if you want to understand it better yourselves, please check out our video above featuring teacher, Mrs. Mark, and school counselor Mrs. Palmer. Both do a terrific job of showing the effectiveness of mentoring and how by investing an hour of time, a trustworthy adult can make a tremendous impact. Thank you all for giving your time to make a difference in the life of a child. Just showing up is all it takes.
