Help guide middle school students - all from the comfort of YOUR home!
Who are we?: Los Angeles Team Mentoring focuses on guiding middle school students growing up in challenging urban environments to recognize and reach their full potential. We’ve partnered with nine different LAUSD schools.
How can YOU help?: Our team-based mentoring model gives you the chance to impact the lives of 12-15 students with the support of another adult mentor. As a mentor you will work with our kids to complete the activities in the provided curriculum and discuss the valuable life lessons learned from the tasks. Examples of these activities include topics in career readiness, self-esteem and confidence building, maintaining healthy relationships, and resolving conflicts/ disagreements.
Oh, did we mention this is all done from the comfort of your home or office? All meetings with our kids will be done online through our mentor portal. All you need is a device with a camera and internet access!
What perks do we offer?: Not only will you be able to make a difference with our kids, you will also have the chance to build your resume and gain real- world experience. You will be able to network with other mentors that are professionals in a variety of fields. LATM will happily write you a letter of recommendation upon request. This will be a GREAT opportunity if you are looking to be in the education, psychology, sociology, social work or child development field.
What will YOUR impact be?: This will be the first year we launch our e-mentoring program. Our kids need positive role models now more than ever, and you can be part of this historic move! Despite not being a tutoring program, our mentored youth are more likely to graduate from high school, go to college, and receive higher grades compared to non-mentored youth. An hour of your time once a week can make all the difference!
