In School Prevention Intervention Resource
GVM has hired mentors who will be working with 12 students each for 2 hours per week.
These mentors are in the Crested Butte, Gunnison and Lake City schools
and are working with students in 6th - 8th grade.
Students were referred by their teachers who felt that they would benefit from the additional adult interaction.
Mentors and students will be working toward increased school success through school engagement, goal setting, and leadership skills. The outcomes we hope to see for each student are academic improvement, increased school bonding, and increased knowledge of the risks of alcohol and drugs.
The funding for this program runs from September 2015 through June 2016.
