Panama City, FL –
PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WMBB) – The 2020-2021 school year presented new challenges for teachers, staff and students, but a local mentoring program could provide support for schools and students in need to the rest of the year.
The Elevate Bay Mentorship Initiative, through Bay District Schools, pairs a mentor with ‘at risk’ students and classrooms in need of a helping hand, to keep kids on track in their educational and social development, depending on the district.
Mentoring initiatives specialist Stacey Legg said Elevate Bay will be holding another orientation session on Jan.21, starting at 1 p.m. in the Nelson Building, for community members interested in becoming a mentor.
Legg explained that group and one-on-one mentoring options are available and that volunteers will need to spend at least 30 minutes, twice a month, at their assignment.
However, Legg said those interested must register before the orientation session to secure a spot.
Those wishing to attend the orientation can visit Elevate Bay on Facebook and message the account, or email Legg at email@example.com.
