"Be A Champion" Mentor Program

A partnership between FOSD and the Oregon School District (OSD), the mentor program matches a 4th - 8th grade student with a caring adult who will serve as that child's champion. 

Mentoring takes place one hour per week, in-person, at the student's school building. 
Mentors engage their mentee in games, crafts or other activities, not tutoring. OSD's goal is to match a mentor's interests with a child who would benefit from this time together. The impact of this positive relationship with an adult committed to their well-being and the opportunity to build a positive connection has been shown to positively impact a child's educational experience and their future. 
This program is facilitated by OSD staff who select the children who are most in need of mentoring. FOSD serves as a financial supporter of the program and a bridge builder to the community in finding adult mentors.

No previous mentoring experience is required and all mentors are given a brief training prior to beginning. Next trainings are: September 28 from 6:00 - 7:30PM at Rome Corners Immediate (RCI) School or September 30 from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at Rome Corners Intermediate (RCI) School.
