“I think if you reflect on your children you probably remember someone who was a mentor to you, a person you could trust and who made you feel special,” said Regina Davis, community engagement coordinator for Norfolk Public Schools. “Mentoring can and does help our young people succeed.”
According to Davis, every mentorship relationship is unique; however, mentors usually provide friendship, help students develop life skills, provide new opportunities and enable students to build their communication skills.
In all, there are 58 mentorship site coordinators who will organize and head up the SMP at various Norfolk schools this year. And outside of the regular one-on-one and group sessions that students get with their mentors, the SMP will be offering special opportunities throughout the year for program members to mingle and have fun.
On Wednesday, October 22 from 5 to 8 p.m. the SMP will be sponsoring a Rock and Bowl at Liberty Lanes bowling Center. For more information, please contact 757-628-3951.
