Learn how you can become a Take Stock in Children mentor, and help change a life over lunch!
Nassau County, FL – Take Stock in Children is looking for female volunteers especially in the Yulee area to serve as mentors for deserving children in grades 7-12. Mentors serve as adult friends providing guidance and support during weekly meetings with their students at school. The meetings last about an hour and are sometimes held during lunch. The meetings also serve as reminders to the students of their commitment of good grades, attendance and behavior as Take Stock participants. Their reward for fulfilling that commitment is a college tuition scholarship upon graduation.
Mentors are asked to complete an application, are interviewed and receive training. A Take Stock mentor training will be held on Monday, September 9 from 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm at FSCJ Betty P. Cook Nassau Center, 76346 William Burgess Blvd in Yulee.
Take Stock in Children has provided college scholarships to more than 185 Nassau students over the last 15 years. Another 150 Take Stock scholars are in Nassau County’s four middle and high schools.
