The REACH Mentoring program matches a caring adult with a student in K-12th grade. Our primary focus is on building a relationship rather than tutoring, which we’ve found often helps lead to increased student academic success. You are not only supporting the young people in our community, but you are helping to provide a positive path forward to their success in the future. Come join us to reconnect with the students in the community and see the meaningful and invaluable time you're missing out on!
What is REACH Mentoring?
REACH is a school-based mentoring program for Angleton ISD students. Students are recommended by their campus with parents' permission. Mentors are matched with students based on personality, interests, and schedule.
What is the commitment?
Mentors meet with their students at least once every six weeks for 30 minutes up to once a week on the students' home campus during school hours. Mentors are committing to mentor for the duration of the school year, but if the mentor and mentee are both interested, they may continue meeting in subsequent school years.
How do I signup?
Please fill out the application and consent for a background check below. Mentors must also attend at least one training session before being matched with a student. Sign up for training using the link below:
