Northshore Community Schools of Northshore School District
UWB mentors are welcomed partners of Northshore Community Schools. Whether you are joining the partnership as a Community Based Learning student or as a student-life volunteer, your involvement with Northshore Community Schools enriches the community and promotes lifelong learning for you, youth and their families. In addition to the help available to you at your college campus, support from a variety of professionals within the school and community are ready to assist you in your role.
Volunteer opportunities within Northshore Community Schools include mentoring junior high and high school youth. As a mentor, you will provide positive support and a constructive example. College mentors become good listeners, care about and develop skills in positive youth development, and assist young people to bring out strengths that already exist but may not be practiced
Classroom Mentors support the learning environment in classroom settings to improve students’ confidence to independently complete classwork. Mentors may identify strengths and barriers youth bring to the academic setting, assist youth with problem solving and developing positive communication skills and/or coping behaviors. Teachers and mentors will work together to support students’ academic skills and confidence. Classroom mentors do not necessarily need to be subject experts. Classroom mentors have an interest in helping youth discover success.
