S.T.A.R.S. Supporting, Teaching and Reaching Students is a school-based program for students who would benefit from the positive influence a mentor can bring to their life.

Mentoring a child is a way for community members and businesses to volunteer.  When you volunteer as a mentor you not only discover new things about yourself but you provide a friendship to a child who needs and wants the positive influence.

  • 53% of students credit mentors with improving their ability to avoid drugs.
  • 59% of mentored teens get better grades.
  • Mentoring improves a mentee’s self-esteem.
  • Mentees want positive social attitudes and relationships.

 

You can sign up to be a mentor by contacting Kirk Wooldridge or call the church office at 512-255-3454.
