School Based Mentoring
Laura and Tyeisha
Be a Mentor… All the Cool Kids are Doing it!
Peer pressure isn’t always a bad thing. Bring a friend who’d be a good mentor!
What: All of us know at least one person who would be a great mentor. Please bring a friend who isn’t already involved with Partners to socialize, have some food and a drink, and learn more about becoming a mentor! Everyone attending will receive a drink ticket and we’ll have an appetizer buffet available.
Where: Old Chicago – South (4709 S Timberline Rd #1, Fort Collins, CO)
When: Tuesday, August 26th from 5:00 – 7:00pm. Feel free to come in as time allows for your schedule, but please make sure you are there by 6:00 for your friends to learn about the program. At 6:00, we will give a brief (10-20 minute) presentation about our volunteer roles, then we’ll have more time to socialize and eat while your friends have the opportunity to ask questions about the program.
Why? We always need volunteers! We have so many kiddos waiting to be matched and we need more awesome mentors!
RSVP: Please sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (970) 484-7123 X20 to provide your name and the name of the person who you will be bringing with you. All RSVPs are needed by 3:30pm on Friday, August 22nd
Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you there!!
We need your help
Our goal is to support 500 youth this year. Halfway through the year, we find ourselves slightly behind in our goal due to lack of volunteers. We know that 'word of mouth' pulls in 60% of our mentors and that people like you are our best marketing tool.
Between now and August 31st, we are looking for 75 new mentors for our School Based and Community Based programs so that we can meet our goal this year. Here is how you can support us:
· Do you know someone who would make a great mentor? Tell us about them. We would love to meet them, take them to coffee, and tell them more about what we do.
· Spread the word at your office, to your friends and family. Could we come to your place of employment and give a presentation?
· Does your place of employment have an email announcement system or news boards? Can you post for us on them?
· "Like" us on Facebook, send this email on to someone you know, send people to our website. Help us spread the word.
· Have any recruitment ideas? Send them our way.
