TISD Looking for Tiger Mentors

Texarkana, TX – School age students 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.

As part of their Kids At Hope Program, Tiger Mentors are needed for Texas Middle School, Texas High School and OPTIONS Academic Alternative High School students so that they will benefit from a one-on-one relationship with an adult other than their teachers. Mentors can provide consistent caring, support, guidance and concrete help as students go through various challenging periods in their development.

Tiger Mentors help students gain the skills and confidence to be responsible for their own future. They seek to further the development of character and competence in a younger person and are committed to expending time and energy necessary to help the student succeed in school.

Requirements to become a Tiger Mentor are:
*Commit to participate in the program for at least one school year
and meet once a month
*Attend a one-hour mentor training program
*Attend mixer activities
*Submit an application
*Conduct all meetings on school grounds.

For more information on how you can become a Tiger Mentor, contact Jo Ann Rice at 903.794.3651 ext. 1035.
