The Greater Hyannis Civic Association's Supporting Our Youth Task Force (HySOY, Inc) is currently recruiting adults (aged 21+) to mentor kindergarten students at Hyannis West Elementary School for the 2012-2013 school year.
- We would like mentors that can make at least a one year commitment and would prefer a four year commitment--kindergarten through grade 3.
- Mentors meet with one student for about 1 hour per week between October and May, either before school, after school or during the lunch period. In addition, mentors receive training for 1 hour, one time per month. This provides an opportunity for people who work a 9-5 schedule to see students before school, those working a 7-3 schedule to see students after school, and those with a more flexible schedule to coordinate either of the three times.
Retirees, young professionals, and people with bilingual language skills are urged to apply. Mentors will develop a caring, one-on-one relationship with a student through playing games, talking, eating lunch or practicing social and age-appropriate skills together. Times to mentor include 8-9am, the lunch hour, and 330-430pm. With some times a little earlier and later depending on the student's before and after care program times.
