Fort Bend ISD (September 8, 2017) – New and returning Fort Bend ISD mentors are invited to attend one of two events – a mentor training and mentor equipping session – on Wednesday, September 13. Hosted by the District’s Collaborative Communities Department, the training sessions will prepare volunteer mentors for supporting the District’s Guiding Promising Students (GPS) Mentoring Program.

 

The following are details regarding each event:

 

Mentor Training

Time:  9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Location:  FBISD Administration Building (16431 Lexington Blvd., Sugar Land, 77479)

Participants:  Individuals who are new to the District’s mentoring program

 

The mentor training is a one-time, mandatory meeting for individuals who have shown an interest in joining the GPS mentoring program. During the training, participants will receive an overview of the program, guidelines for working with FBISD students, as well as strategies and tips for ensuring a successful mentoring partnership with their select student(s). Mentors are asked to sign a one-year commitment agreeing to meet with a student once a week during the school year. Mentors are also required to complete a background check. Once the background check is completed, the District will send mentor applications to the campuses they request.

 

Mentor Equipping Session on Goal-Setting
