Mentor/Volunteer Participation Progam

The MVP program offers an opportunity for students in need of additional assistance to realize their potential while developing a relationship with an adult role model. Mentor/Volunteers provide not only the assistance needed for academic success, but serve as a "cheerleader" to encourage the student to perform at their best. Click the logo for more information.
