Mentors Needed!

Mentors Needed!

Teachers make a Difference in our School and Community

The Boys & Girls Club of Newport County and Mentor Rhode Island are looking for teachers and school personnel because they have the experience, time, and personality suited to serve as Mentors. We are targeting students who show high risk behaviors such as those involved with the Chronic Early Absenteeism and Truancy Reduction Initiative (CEATRI). Mentors provide social and emotional support for their Mentees, helping to develop social competency skills.
