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.

Hello friends,

Hasn't this been a lovely spring?

Thank you to Franklin D. Roosevelt Elementary School and Nampa School District for hosting the Nampa Mentor Gathering on April 20th. Everyone had such a great time and truly felt appreciated. Thank you to Roosevelt Principal Shawn Tegethoff for all your work in coordinating and decorating for this special event. Thank you for making our mentors feel so welcome!

The Treasure Valley Kiwanis Club of Nampa has invited The Mentoring Network and Nampa Optimist football to be the recipients of the funds raised, once again, during their FUN golf scramble Swing Fore Kids on May 12th from 8am-2pm at Centennial Golf Course in Nampa. If you enjoy any level of golfing and the outdoors start putting your team together. $75 per person: includes Green Fees, Cart & Lunch. If you'd rather encourage folks you know to be sponsors or donate raffle items that would be a great help. This is a small service club that does some BIG things and we want them to know how much we appreciate them making this fundraising event possible. For details or to register, contact: TreasureValleyKiwanis@gmail.com or call James (208-631-4782) or Sammy (208-250-2944).

We'd also love to hear who your mentor is. We'll be posting them on the Instagram account (@whosyourmentor). If you have a mentor you'd like to tell us about, let us know! We'd love to hear from you! Or Instagram yourself and tag @whosyourmentor so we can share!

We are still looking for mentoring stories! If you have a great story about mentoring, please contact us so we can hear about it as well!

May you have a "song in your heart" sort of day...

"When the night has come and the land is dark and the moon is the only light we'll see. No, I won't be afraid. Oh, I won't be afraid. Just as long as you stand, stand by me"

"If you're ever up a tree, phone to me. If you're ever down a well, ring my bell. If you ever lose your teeth, and you're out to dine... borrow mine. It's friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship. When other friendships have been forgate, Ours will still be great." –Cole Porter
