Description

Support Austin ISD students by becoming a mentor! APIE mentors work one-on-one with students during the school day. They help students improve their social and study skills, strengthen their communication skills, and build self-confidence. They inspire children to develop new interests, explore career possibilities, and achieve their personal and academic goals. Mentors may choose to work at any Austin ISD school with a student at the grade level of their choice (K-12).

APIE mentors should be:

  • Positive, caring adults
  • Able to commit to 45 minutes to an hour a week (typically during the student’s lunch period) to meet with the student consistently throughout the school year
  • Non-judgmental and supportive
  • Good listeners
  • Willing to submit to a background check

APIE mentors receive:

  • Initial mentor training (one hour session, required before meeting with student)
  • Introduction to supportive strategies to use with students in building effective mentor relationships
  • Support from an on-campus mentor coordinator

Be who you NEEDED when you were younger. We are currently recruiting and training mentors and need YOU.
