We are reaching out today to ask for your prayer and action. Neighbor to Neighbor has a new mentoring partnership with Milbrook Elementary School working with 40 ESL students after school to give these students additional critical resources for their development after school.
The program will meet 4 days a week M-Th from 430-6 pm. The mentoring sessions will take place from 5-6 pm after a snack and rec time from 430-5 pm. Each student will come twice a week and will need 2 caring mentors. We will meet at MUMC gym for the program.
We are looking for 80 caring mentors that will give just ONE HOUR A WEEK. You will get to know your student and we even provide simple ways to help build relationships. We provide a nice simple lesson plan and staff to make you look good when you get stuck.
Below is the sign-up form. We are hoping to get started at the beginning of March. You don’t need to speak Spanish, you just need to come to care, support, and love. https://forms.gle/S1LK1oCxt5AWQ6X79
