The REACH Mentoring program matches a caring adult with a student on the brink of success. Our primary focus is on relationship building rather than tutoring, which we’ve found often helps lead to increased student academic success.
What is REACH Mentoring?
REACH is a school-based mentoring program for Angleton ISD students. Students are recommended by their campus with parent permission. Mentors are matched with students based on personality, interests, and schedule.
What is the committment?
Mentors meet with their student one day a week for 30 minutes at the campus during school hours. Mentors are committing to mentor for the duration of the school year, but the mentor and mentee are both interested, they may continue meeting in subsequent school years.
Mentors must attend at least one training session before being matched with a student. Sign up for training using the below link.
