You Can Make A Difference
Mentor A HIgh School Student !
What does an Oakland Serves Mentor do?
Volunteer to go into class once a week or work after school with a matched high school student who is struggling academically. The mentor helps the student overcome the barriers to their academic success and put them on the path to graduation. Help with school work, with organization, or even with improving attendance to make a difference in the life of the student.
"Unmatched" classroom mentors may work with multiple students as needed in a group learning setting.
