Individuals, groups and businesses wanting to impact the quality of education in our schools need look no further. From our dedicated Board of Directors to the team of committed Take Stock in Children mentors, volunteers play a crucial role in the success of The Foundation and its programs. Below are just a few ways you can get involved. High school students earn Bright Futures community service hours by volunteering for our programs.

Mentors - Take Stock in Children

Mentors – Take Stock in Children

Take Stock in Children provides volunteers with the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a student. Mentors are caring, compassionate adults who choose to devote their time to young people, offering them support, guidance and encouragement.

Mentoring sessions range for 30-60 minutes and occur at a school near your home or workplace, during school hours. The days and times of mentoring sessions are arranged between the mentor and student, depending on their individual schedules and classes.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Natalia Rodriguez, Program Specialist, at 407-320-0162 or rodrignc@scps.k12.fl.us Applicants must complete two forms: the Take Stock in Children Mentor Application and register with Seminole County Public Schools Dividends program.
