Website Partners in Routt County

AmeriCorps Members provide one-to-one mentoring for 10 target students and additional programming based on school needs.

To meet growing student needs, particularly in the wake of the pandemic, school districts would benefit from additional committed, trained, and trusted adults that can build positive and supportive relationships with students in the school setting. To increase the availability of safe and trusted adults in the school setting, the PRC School Based Mentoring program will place 10 AmeriCorps members in public schools (elementary, middle, and high school) throughout Routt County. Mentors will work with school personnel to identify a caseload of 10 students who are considered at-risk (typically having two or more ACEs including but not limited to: low-income, mental health issues, familial substance abuse, domestic violence, English as a second language, incarcerated parent, victim of abuse or neglect, etc.). The core activities for this mentoring model focus on increasing adult bonding. To this end, members will spend a minimum of one hour, one-on-one, each week with each of their students, for at least six months of the school year. Mentors will use time with students to check in on attendance, grades, and to connect via intentional life skill activities focused on the social and emotional aspects of students’ lives.
