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 goal is to provide school-based, direct-to-youth mentoring that will improve life outcomes for vulnerable and disengaged children by developing resilience skills, supporting the development of personal strengths, and increasing self-sufficiency 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.

Who's your mentor?

"I'd have to say my mentor is Fran. She leads by example. She always has time. It doesn't matter if she's doing fourteen things for her family, she will always make time to cook a casserole or something for someone in need. She doesn't tell anyone what she does.

She laughs, jokes, and carries on but doesn't tell anyone the serious things she's done. She's had really serious health issues in her life, but you'd never know it. She doesn't talk about it and doesn't say "pity me", she just accepts it. She's taught me to put away my self-righteousness and get on with life.

One word to describe her? Gracious."

One of our mentor/mentee pairs painted a cheery poster picture of a spring day that said 'Spring Brings Brighter Days' for a senior through CCOA.
