We Welcome our Community
How would you like to have really good Community Relations agents out in your community? How about good Community Relations that is FREE?
For 3 years, my husband, Arnold, and I have been mentoring students at the Ridgeland-Hardeeville High School in Jasper County. We are professional educators serving as volunteers. We love the students and appreciate the way the staff has welcomed us and entrusted us with their students. We tell everyone we know about the wonderful things going on at the high school. We live within easy driving distance of the school and we are happy to provide information to the community for the Jasper County schools.
Every school district needs to welcome volunteer mentors who will be good for the students and staff and are willing to spread good news about the schools out in the community.
Benefits of well-trained volunteer mentors to your district might include:
CAUTION: while it is wonderful to consider benefits of encouraging community members to volunteer in your schools, if you don’t provide quality training, you are asking for trouble!
So how do you recruit and train good volunteers or mentors?
You may find a complete plan for your school district or organization in a manual written by Carol Hillman It includes surveys to help you assess volunteers’ interests and skills, confidentiality waivers all mentors must sign, directions to help mentors get security clearances, and much more.
Order one manual ($7.00) and when you are ready to do the training, order more manuals at a reduced price. Portion of the price will be donated to SCORS.
