School age youngsters today have too few people in their lives that are able and willing to support and motivate them to identify and achieve their goals in life. Texarkana Independent School District feels that our students will benefit from a one-on-one relationship with an adult other than their teachers. These persons can provide consistent caring, support, guidance and concrete help as youngsters go through various challenging periods in their development.
Mentoring is an important answer to this need. Mentors can help students gain the skills and confidence to be responsible for their own future.
Students began to “be” what they believe other people think of them. If students are given negative images of themselves, they begin to think of themselves accordingly; and may not learn. This program proposes to place caring individuals with students who need positive support for their educational and personal growth.
