I am working to start a mentoring program at our Middle School. It is called Study Buddy. A group of high school students will go to the middle school once a week to assist any student that is struggling in a certain area or needing assistance with homework. This program will start the week of March 24th. In coming up with this program I had to contact the High School Principal and set up a proposal as to what I wanted to happen and how I intended to carry it out. Then I met with the guidance counclor at the Middle School. Everyone is very excited about getting this program started. My hope is that it can be expanded to the Elementary Schools and High School. There is always a need and I feel this is a great way to begin to fill that need.
The inspiration came from my two younger sisters and my assistance with them.
