FNM Mentorship

School Division: Saskatchewan Rivers Public School Division
Topic: FNM Mentorship
Description: Our Mentor Program focuses on improving FNM graduation rates within our urban high schools. With mentors in our high schools, students are able to overcome some of the barriers that keep them from achieving academically. Our Mentors are very effective in finding the proper resources needed to meet the needs of the students they are assigned. Our Mentors work hard to provide positive experiences for these students, allowing them the opportunity to build positive and healthy relationships with their peers, staff, and family members. The guidance and support our students get from our Mentors helps them to break down and overcome many barriers to learning. Some of these barriers include; poor attendance, low self-confidence, social and emotional issues, and families in crisis.
