Being a mentor to a young person is one of the kindest and most rewarding things an adult can do. It is a special opportunity to share your knowledge and experience as well as watch the student grow and develop. Donating your time is the highest form of charitable giving. Mentors at Andrew CSD typically meet with students once per week during the school day. Mentors can help with homework, read with the student, play games and help to build positive relationships.
