Volunteering at Hamilton School

The long-term goal of partnering with Hamilton School, and the students, is to create an effective mentorship model that will set up students for success in school.

The goal of each mentoring relationship will be to help a student transition into the school day so that they can be successful in their school environment. Desired outcomes include: improved academic performance, fewer disciplinary referrals, and greater display of school district values of "respectful, responsible, safe."

Each student selected for the mentorship program (selected by Hamilton School staff) will be paired with a mentor who can provide consistent weekly support during the school year. The mentors will greet their students as they enter the school; sit with students and talk to them; escort students to lockers and classroom and help them get organized; and coach students through transition into the classroom. The focus will be on building a trusting relationship and allowing the student to experience positive adult contact.
