Meadow Wood participates in the SpringBoard Mentoring Program which is an umbrella program for community-supported mentor programs throughout Spring Branch ISD. The program is grounded in extensive research affirming that all children and young adults benefit from the consistent presence of a caring adult serving as a role model, advocate and friend.
To learn more, please visit the SpringBoard Mentoring Program website; https://www.springbranchisd.com/engage/mentors/springboard-mentor-program
Any person (grandparent, parent, aunt, uncle, neighbor, etc.) who registers as a SBISD Volunteer and completes the Mentor Training, may participate in the program. If a parent volunteers as a mentor, they are not matched with a student in their child’s grade.
Mentoring is a once-a-week commitment to spend the lunch hour + recess with a student “on the brink of success.” Most mentors do move from grade to grade with their mentees, but the initial commitment is only one-school-year. Mentors in the program are matched with same gender mentees.
New mentors will complete the mentor/volunteer registration for 2018-2019, and then attend one new mentor training session.
There are multiple New Mentor Trainings at the SBISD Administration Building, 955 Campbell, each month. To see available dates, please follow these steps:
