3.7.5 Student Mentor Program

Student Mentor Program

The SFUSD Student Mentor Program (Mentoring for Success) is a school based mentoring program that provides students with highly qualified and effective mentors who engage students in asset building activities to build skills for school success, improved attendance, and high self-esteem. The program matches children with caring adult mentors in a 1:1 or small group program model. Mentors include school staff such as teachers, counselors, and principals.  Each child meets with his or her mentor at least once per week, for 30 to 60 minutes.   A stable relationship with a caring adult can help children build personal and social skills and avoid risky behaviors.  For more information, visit www.sfusd.edu/mentoring-for-success.
