Parent Mentors engages and empowers trusted adults in their own children’s education, as well as many other elementary students’ school experiences. Our program provides training and support to help develop participants into educational leaders and role models in their schools and communities through volunteerism.
YouthPower365’s Parent Mentor program gives trusted adults in our community the chance to be heard, gain professional development, become leaders, develop advocacy skills and build capacity to enrich the community and best support our Valley’s student population. Trusted adults in Eagle County apply to become regularly scheduled volunteers with a classroom teacher for the course of one school year. Through observation, modeling and mentoring, the participants become active supports in the success of each student in the classroom and their own children.
The Parent Mentor program takes into consideration participant goals and needs for professional development which are held periodically throughout the year. The training experiences support the connectedness of the program, utilizing the strengths of its participants and developing skills and understanding related to their time in the classroom and their own personal growth and discovery.
