Become A Mentor
One of the divisions of the Partners in Education organization is REACH. The program is designed to foster a basic sense of self-esteem, self-confidence and a motivation to learn and improve personal and social skills that will reinforce the importance of an education. Reaching one child at a time is the primary goal of the program.
Mentors are asked to volunteer a minimum of one hour per week during the school day. This is a school-based program, therefore, all mentoring takes place at the student’s campus during a time that has been set up by the Campus Liaison and the mentor. Outside contact is not allowed unless it is at a school function, such as a basketball game.
How do I Become a Mentor?
Opportunities to mentor are available at all McKinney ISD campuses. All McKinney ISD volunteers are required to complete the online McKinney ISD volunteer application. When filling out the volunteer application please make sure to select “REACH” for your volunteer capacity. This process includes a background check. Once approved, a one hour mentor orientation training is required. A Campus Liaison will then contact you to schedule a face-to-face meeting. You will then be matched with a mentee, and a date will be established to begin the program
How do I Begin the Process?
Volunteers are asked to contact the McKinney Independent School District Partners In Education Office at One Duvall Street, McKinney Texas, 469-302-4043 or e-mail Nancy Cowlishaw.
