VOICE MENTOR PROGRAM
(Volunteers Of Issaquah Changing Education)
Funded by the Issaquah Schools Foundation in partnership with the School District, the VOICE Mentor Program pairs community members with students for once-a-week mentoring.
VOICE is looking for community volunteers to work one on one with Issaquah students. These students are referred by teachers and counselors as needing extra support whether it is academic, social or emotional. The Volunteer commitment is one hour per week through the school year. The Volunteers work in the school setting in partnership with the school staff.
Our volunteers routinely state that they make a strong bond with their student and “get more than they give.” We strive to make the students and mentors time together meaningful and valued.
Placements are made based on the mentors’ interests. Whether a mentor’s passion is literacy, ESL students, math or another area, we have a place for you in Issaquah schools.
Please help us recruit your neighbors, friends, relatives or colleagues to become a mentor.
