Students Striving for Success is a volunteer mentoring organization in partnership with El Reno Public Schools and the El Reno Public School Foundation. The program matches community volunteers with students based upon interest, experience, and need. Students in Grades 1-7 are eligible to participate in this program.
A mentor is a volunteer, at least 21 years of age, willing to dedicate time each week to guide the development of a child or youth. A mentor builds a relationship based on trust and acceptance with their mentee to empower and motive the mentee to succeed. A mentor is a role model, friend, motivator, and a good listener.
A mentor is committed to spend 40-60 minutes per week one-on-one with their assigned student. The mentor can typically pick out a time that will work for each person in the mentor relationship. Mentor assignments are typically available Monday – Thursday, from 8:30 am – 5:30 pm.
