Welcome, Welcome, Welcome!

IT’S TIME TO HELP CHILDREN SUCCEED!!! We are so excited that you are interested in joining us this school year! Youth Programs makes a wonderful difference in the lives of students in grades K-12 served by Leon County Schools. All mentors gain valuable experiences: interacting with children; learning and applying tutoring skills in reading, writing, math and science; and providing a much-needed service in school sites as well as after-school programs.


If you are coming back to continue the amazing work you began last semester or even a year or more ago, we are ecstatic to see you again!


If you are new to our program we extend a heartfelt welcome to you!  You have made one of the best decisions of your college career.  Inspiring someone else to be successful, academically and socially, and to give hope to and inspire the dreams of others is a powerful task and you have made the first step in fulfilling it. Our program is the place where you can inspire, empower and encourage someone else by simply being you.  The rewards that you will gain as a part of this program will be immeasurable and life-changing.


We look forward to meeting you and I know the students are eager to see you too!  We will host our mentor training sessions September 15, and 16, 2016 from 4:00pm-5:30pm in rooms 2201 and 2202 of the Dunlap Success Center (you only need to attend ONE session). You can register for a training session by clicking here:


Thank you for your unwavering commitment to our schools and we look forward to seeing you soon!
