Mentoring Program

One of the School Committee Goals is "encouraging post secondary education for all of our students, financial support for higher education, and mentoring program for supporting secondary education and post secondary education." We have been working with the Island Institute, community members, the Library and the Rec Center to establish these goals. We had a well attended meeting at the library with the Island Institute and have established a mentoring program for Post Secondary Education. Many community members have volunteered to be ready to help with all aspects of continuing education for the whole community. Click here for the list of Mentors.
