The Mentoring Network

The Mentoring Network, Inc. serves five rural school districts (Nampa, Caldwell, Parma, Homedale, Vallivue) offering school-based mentoring to at-risk students, grades 1st-8th.

The goals of the mentoring program are to improve at-risk students' attendance, grades, and behaviors through friendship building with responsible, caring adults (18yrs. and older) who meet with their student one hour, once a week, on the school grounds, during the school year.

If you work for any of the above occupations, can you reduce the purpose of your work to two goals?

 1) To help make families healthy and comfortable 

  2) To help make homes available, safe, and accessible

In employment, the road to success can be complex and tortuous. Hope for promotions and advancement sometimes blur the vision of true accomplishment.

When you are 104 in a nursing home, what will be important?

 As mentors, realize that you have segued to success in these two goals by giving an hour a week to a child. That hour a week builds a relationship that helps make children healthier and more comfortable with the world. You help strengthen the scaffolding of family by showing you care and you create a safer future for all as you help create hope in the heart of a child.

Remember to take time to smell the flowers...
