The joy of mentoring – By Akeem Blake, CISR Mentor

Akeem Blake, a CISR Mentor, recently wrote a commentary on his experiences with the CISR Mentor Program for the Renton Reporter. Click here to read this heartfelt commentary and get an idea of what makes mentoring so great!

The Mentor Program matches adult mentors with children in need of a caring, consistent adult friend.  Our mentors serve as role models and friends, supporting and encouraging a student’s success by spending one hour a week with the student at school.

One hour a week will bring consistency, support, and stability to a child’s life.  Become a mentor or recommend someone you know. As Akeem puts it “Take it from me; a few simple interactions with a child can change everything in their life.”
