What is a Mentor?  A volunteer that works with a student on an individual basis by 
 30 minutes per week during school hours with a student for the school year and hopefully the following year.  What does a mentor do?  They might
  • Read with a student
  • Play a game
  • Help with an assignment
  • Do an activity
  • Just LISTEN
How Do You Become a Mentor at Piney Grove? 
Mentor training requires attending one two-hour session, completing an application and a background check. Unable to attend a training?  Would you like to have training during day hours or at your organization or work site?  No problem - Mentor training is available upon request.  Last year training was held at churches, civic groups, mortgage companies, schools, and many other locations.
