Mentors - Making a Difference!
The Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce partners with Missouri Valley Big Brothers Big Sisters for mentoring in the local schools. To find out more about volunteering and to sign up, individuals can go to the national website at www.bigbrothersbigsisters.org.
Several elementary, middle and high school students are in need of mentors. Spending one hour with a student is very rewarding and makes a difference in their life! For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org at the Chamber.
The Jefferson City Public Schools English for Speakers of Other Languages program needs mentors for some of our foreign born children who are learning English. We need mentors who could read with the children or help with homework. Mentors do not need to speak the child's native language. Mentors may commit from 1 hour per week to 10 hours per week. Please contact Sarah Porter, email@example.com for information.
