Become a Mentor at Mott Hall Charter School: The goal of the program will be to pair Mott Hall scholars with a professional adult who can serve as a primary source of emotional support, supplemental academic enrichment, counsel, friendship, and positive reinforcement.  We had a successful kickoff last month with about 15 Stanford graduates on Stanford’s Alumni Day and we’re hoping to expand the experience into a real program in the upcoming school year. To do that, we need your help – we need mentors! Here is an overview of the mentorship program:The Mott Hall Charter School Mentorship Program – Description – July 2015.   All inquiries should be emailed to our Mentor Coordinator, Shirley Rodriguez (srodriguez1@motthallcs.org).

Calling all Citizens! Become a Citizen Teacher: We are all experts in something; whether it’s entrepreneurship, advertising, banking, law, medicine, or engineering. Citizen Schools offers middle school students in public schools in underserved communities the opportunity to work side-by-side with experts in a range of fields by providing them with apprenticeship courses taught by volunteers like us.  Apprenticeships are a great way to connect with colleagues and continue to give back to kids. And it works. Citizen Schools’ students graduate at a 20% higher rate than matched peers!  You don’t have to be a full-time teacher anymore to change a student’s life. Citizen Schools invites TFA Alum & Staff to join them in inspiring kids for the Fall 2015 semester. TFA and other leading organizations like Google, American Express, Facebook, and Spotify have done a variety of projects with students – from building a sports franchise to creating public service announcements and developing a personal brand to programming robots. Teams can choose from the library of existing projects or come up with their own. You can also hear from some volunteers and students who have participated before here. Join the movement and participate in inspiring the next generation!
