Four Points Area Middle School Students Need Our Help!

It has been brought to our attention that there are several middle school students in the LISD Mentoring Program urgently need our help!

As a result, we are reaching out to our fellow Four Points Chamber of Commerce members and seeking volunteers who may have interest in serving as role models to the Four Points area middle school students enrolled the 2010-2011 Leander ISD Mentoring Program.

This is a unique opportunity to help shape the lives of many adults of our community, simply by providing guidance and support to those who have a need right here in our own backyard – the students at Canyon Ridge and Four Points Middle Schools.

If you or someone you know have always wanted to give back by supporting the children of our community, are a responsible community member who likes and respects children and young adults, are genuinely concerned about helping others, and have a desire to enhance local student’s academic performance and life, this may be a perfect fit for you.

By sharing your time and serving as a role model for only 30-45 minutes per week over the course of the school year, you’ll make a real difference in a student’s world, while enhancing our own life experiences and helping your assigned student improve their academic performance and build character for success.

Students participating in the program are from different backgrounds, have a variety of interests, and range in ages from 6th – 8th grade. These students may need help with academic achievement, character development, problem solving, self-esteem, relationships with adults or peers, or motivation for school attendance. They are in this mentoring program either because a teacher, counselor or parent has recommended them, or in many cases, the student has simply asked to participate. All of these students are actively seeking a mentor from our community with their parents’ permission and need our help, with so many still awaiting news of who their role model will be.

If you or someone you know are interested in helping make a difference in a student’s life and would like more information about what is involved and where to begin, please contact our Chamber liaison, Marissa Radack, ASAP at Tel# 512.913.4759 or email her at mradack@austin.rr.com.
