Mentor Program

Blue Ridge Middle School is an Mentor Upstate School. 

MENTOR UPSTATE promotes the establishment and development of mentoring partnerships in elementary, middle, and high schools in the upstate of South Carolina. 

The Goal
is to facilitate healthy and sustainable relationships between students and adults in our community. 

The Role
Mentors pursue an intentional friendship with a student at a local school in an effort to influence positive behavior.

The Commitment
Mentors meet with a student once a week during lunch or breakfast for the academic calendar year.

Average time is 30-45 minutes.

The Benefits
Students with a consistent role model have statistically shown improvements in academic performance and school attendance, a decrease in disciplinary issues, and tend to display an overall more positive attitude about life, school and future choices. 

Please contact Mrs. Bishop at  to sign up and to receive the required training! All training is completed through our school and not Mentor Upstate.
