How do Mentors in Sacramento Schools Help Students?
The mentors involved in the Navigators Mentor Program in Sacramento Schools are dedicated in providing the following:
Mentors in Sacramento Schools are positive role models and examples for young students. By seeing and talking to someone engaged in life and sharing a positive outlook the mentor may be demonstrating an attitude that the child has not seen carried out in a person before.

Mentors are spending time with individual students, or even a group of students and helping to guide them through programmed activities that encourage success. The bottom line of successful mentoring is the sharing of experiences as a guide to help young students to navigate through challenges both now and in the future.

Mentors also help students to bond with their school and their community by encouraging participation in school and community events.

Perhaps most importantly, mentors in Sacramento Schools help to assist their student through what is likely the most challenging and confusing years of life.
