Impact Mentoring is a program that pairs excelling high school students with junior high school students that would benefit from a high school mentor. Impact Mentoring meets once a week on the junior high school’s campus. Program participants focus on skills such as goal setting, creating trust, study habits, anger management, culture and diversity, preventing rumors and gossip, dependability, along with many other focus areas.
Butte County has 4 Impact Mentoring sites located in Chico, Gridley, and Oroville.
