The 2022 Leadership Aberdeen class is excited to be teaming up with Lutheran Social Services to implement the Hub City Heroes Mentoring Program this fall. The class is working with the Aberdeen School District and will be piloting the program in one elementary school in September 2022. The goal is to empower young people to succeed by establishing trusting relationships with adult volunteers.
Through this in-school mentoring program, volunteers will spend one hour per week with an elementary or middle school student at the school. Mentors and students spend time doing a variety of activities together, including:
Matches will meet during the school lunch hour. The time varies from school to school, but it’s generally a 30 to 45 minute block of time between 11am and 1pm. School counselors select a young person who can use extra one-to-one attention from a caring adult role model. Counselors are responsible for matching students with an In School mentor.
The Leadership class has formed an Aberdeen Advisory Committee that will work alongside LSS to implement the program, recruit mentors, and work to expand the program in additional Aberdeen schools in the coming years.
