Mentoring

   Mentor: A wise and trusted friend and guide

The goal of the Mentoring program is to improve the lives of Stratford’s students through relationships with caring adult mentors.

 

Mentoring Programs available to students in the Stratford Public Schools

 

q     In-School Mentoring Program—establishes a relationship with a caring adult who listens attentively to a student who would benefit from positive support and encouragement from an adult role model.

q     ACE Mentoring Program--an after school program for students interested in careers in Architecture, Construction or Engineering.  Students work with industry professionals on authentic projects designed to expose them to related careers and educational opportunities.

q     Electronic Mentoring Program--connects students electronically with professional mentors who are employees at local and national companies.  The purpose of this program is for students to gain a better knowledge of various career fields and the education and skills required for these careers.  Students communicate with mentors through a secure web-site or e-mail box.
