Covington Partners Mentoring Program celebrates Mentor Appreciation Day at Holmes High School

Mentor Appreciation Day

NKY TRIBUNE

In honor of National Mentoring Month, the Covington Partners Mentoring Program celebrated Mentor Appreciation Day on Wednesday, to recognize the outstanding commitment of volunteer mentors and the impact they have on the lives of Covington students.

More than 150 mentors and students celebrated throughout the day with breakfast and lunch served in the Holmes High School Library.

Every week, even if for a short time, mentors give their full and undivided attention to their mentee. Data indicates that these positive relationships are highly impactful and students with mentors improve their school attendance, behavior, and academic achievement.

Data from the 2015-2016 school year shows that 228 volunteers served as mentors spending more than 4,200 hours meeting one-on-one with students while 98 percent of students with a mentor had good school attendance and 96 percent of students with a mentor reported feeling more confident.

Today, there are 50 students waiting to be matched with a mentor.

The Covington Partners Mentoring Program matches students in grades 3-12 with positive adult role models from the community.  There are a variety of mentoring options to meet any schedule; including options to meet during lunch or afterschool.

Time commitments rages from 30 minutes per week to two hours per month.  For more information, please contact Renee Mains at (859) 392-3178 or renee.mains@covington.kyschools.us.  Additional information is also available at www.mycovingtonpartners.org.
