At it’s August 13th regular meeting, the School Board honored mentors of the TeamMates mentoring program.
The mentors were saluted by the School Board for their devotion of time and caring for the well being of our students.
The Nevada Community School District is thankful for our community of volunteers. If you would like to know more about the TeamMates Mentoring Program, learn more here.
The Mission of the TeamMates program is to positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential through mentoring.
Some recent feedback from our mentors this past year:
“Really good people that come to school to talk to and express yourself and they will listen.”
“Someone to talk to and plan your future and hang out with.”
“One thing I really liked during mentoring this year was showing my mentor card tricks.”
“I can open up to my mentor.”
“That I am stronger than I thought I was – I was able to talk about how I felt.”
“That I am not as shy as I thought, with my TeamMate I was not so shy and felt like I could do anything.”
“You can do a lot of things and talk about how you feel. Your mentor will play games and just have fun and time that you can just enjoy what you are doing. A chance to forget about your problems for a bit.”
