Mentoring Students

Do you or a friend or relative have 30 minutes once a week to make a difference in the life of a child?  Through a partnership with Mentor Upstate, Mitchell Road Elementary partners mentors with students to create positive one on one relationships.  Mentors eat lunch or breakfast once a week with their student at school.  We have many students waiting to be paired with a mentor.  Grace Church Taylors (on Wade Hampton Blvd.) is having a training on 11/24 at 10:30 am.  This one hour training is open to anyone.  Upon completion of the training and a background check, your information will be sent to Gina Kincaid, School Counselor and the contact for Upstate Mentor at MRES.  She will pair you with a child that would benefit from having a mentor! 

Questions?  Call or email Mrs. Kincaid: 864-355-6704;  ghkincaid@greenville.k12.sc.us

Volunteering at MRES

Greenville County Schools (GCS), in an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students, has implemented additional security checks for school volunteers.  All volunteers must submit an online application to the district and receive clearance from the district before volunteering at any school/center or chaperoning any school field trip.
