South Western STEEDS Mentors Help Students Succeed

Have you ever felt like you needed someone to turn to when life just was not going how you expected? Have you ever wanted to share an exciting experience you had but there was no one to tell at the time? Well, students in the EHMIS and High School STEEDS programs continue to have at least one extra person to turn to these days, their mentor. The STEEDS program is for students who have difficulty in the typical school environment, and need assistance with finding success in school.

Community volunteers offer about an hour a week to meet with a designated student from the STEEDS program to discuss the many aspects of life and to provide encouragement and support where it is needed. While mentor programs are popping up in districts all around the country to help provide our youth with positive role models, the South Western School District Mentoring Program is entering its 10th year. At a recent mentor luncheon held on October 16th, many suggestions were made to help improve and extend the program beyond the STEEDS classrooms. The most important was the call for more mentors. Parents, staff, and local community members are encouraged to join the mentoring team at South Western.

If you or someone you know might be interested in mentoring please contact Jane Ingram, Secretary to the Assistant to the Superintendent and Psychologists at 632-2500, ext. 20015, or email at jane_ingram@swsd.k12.pa.us.
