ACORNS- Area Churches Organized to Reaching out and Nurturing Students

ACORN MENTOR PROGRAM-Kick off Week! 

We are excited that South Aiken Presbyterian and Friendship Baptist Church are collaborating with Schofield Middle again this year to provide mentors for our students.  

At Schofield Middle, we believe students need positive affirmation, encouragement, and assistance in setting goals.  Our mentors will serve as positive role models and commit to 30 minutes weekly to listen, encourage, tutor, finish projects and classwork, and assist in the development of goals.  

The commitment for volunteers who participate is one day per week during the child’s lunch period (about 30 minutes) throughout the school year, and the volunteer can pick the day he/she is available.  If we can start identifying volunteers from any congregation or community members who are interested in serving, they can start the screening and training process very quickly.  

Please contact Katrina Brooks or Wendy Bailey at 641-2770 or e-mail katrinab@acpsd.net
