Logan View Public Schools is going to launch their Teammates Mentoring Program next month. High School Counselor Diane Hanel. “On January 16th at the Arlington versus Logan View basketball game we are actually going to be launching our program. There will be activities going on that day along with the students as well as identifying those individuals that already have signed up to be a mentor to attend that basketball game as well.”
Hanel says they’re going to start with the 4th graders. Logan View is currently taking applications for those who want to become a mentor. 30 applications have been turned in so far.
Being a mentor means being a student’s biggest fan and a positive influence in their life, according to Hanel. “It’s face-to-face communication. The matches take place at school. This is a school based mentoring program. And it’s just a way that we can develop the importance of that building a relationship. Having a relationship with a positive individual who’s going to be there for you on a week-to-week basis. It’s also one-on-one, and it’s more personalized.”
Those interested in becoming a mentor or wanting more information can call Hanel or Lori Peters at Logan View High School at 402-654-3317 or visit teammates.org.
