Impact Mentoring is a program that was created to help Junior High Students who are struggling in school. Mentoring pairs Junior High Students (protégés) with High School Students (mentors) to create a one-on-one mentorship. Junior High Students learn essential skills such as how to raise their grades, navigate through their school, and how to set goals for their future. High school students assist with their goal setting, help the protégés through the program, and create a unique one-on-one bond with the students. Mentoring is a unique program that builds resumes, encourages connections between mentors and protégés, and builds lasting friendships.
If you are a high school student and you:
*Are in the Chico, Gridley, Biggs or Oroville Area
*Have a 3.0 or above GPA
* Are a sophomore, junior, or senior
*Would like to see a Junior High School student turn their life around as a result of your participation
* Enjoy working one-on-one with people
* Like the idea of adding that you worked for Butte County Department of Behavioral Health on your resume or college application
* Enjoy working with youth in the community
