Mentoring for Shaw Kids

Penn's Workplace Mentoring Program has issued a call for faculty and staff to mentor 8th grade students from Shaw Middle School.

The program requires a commitment of at least three hours a month--from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of the month--from November to June. Mentors will support the 8th-graders academically, assist them in exploration of educational and career goals, and provide experience working on various projects together. "We are also looking for speakers, and others who want to work with youngsters in this age group," said Bonnie Ragsdale, associate director of the Center for Community Partnerships. She can be reached by phone: 898-2020; by e-mail: ragsdale@pobox; or by fax: 573-2799.
