Mentor Program

Over the past 8 years, Grace Presbyterian Church has partnered with Paul Revere Middle School to provide adults the opportunity to mentor students.

Mentoring, at its core, guarantees students that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with daily challenges, and reminds each student that they matter.  Research confirms that mentoring has a powerful positive effect on students personally, academically, and on their future dreams.
To get started, please follow the process to become a mentor below:
