Make a difference – become a mentor in the Issaquah School District!
If you are looking for an impactful and fulfilling volunteer experience, the Issaquah School District needs people who can support students by meeting with them, at school, during school hours, for 30-60 minutes each week. Mentors are needed at all grade levels, at all schools in the Issaquah School District. Mostly due to the pandemic, over 100 mentors have withdrawn at a time when the need is greater than ever.
There are currently over 250 students on the waiting list.
Mentoring differs from tutoring in that mentoring focuses on fostering positive, supportive relationships which help students develop skills and attitudes (such as resilience, self-advocacy, self-confidence, etc.) to promote academic achievement and success in life.
Here is a youtube video that the district put together of current mentors talking about their mentoring experience.
You can learn more about the VOICE (Volunteers of Issaquah Changing Education) Mentor Program and submit an application from the Issaquah School District’s VOICE Mentor page. Because mentoring is in-person, proof of vaccination is required. Also, you must be cleared with a background check and attend a 2 hour training. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Our staff could use some fuel and treats to grab throughout the week. Please help us restock the staff lounge each Wednesday morning with delicious snacks to keep them going.
