In this year-long mentor program, volunteers from the Eaton Corporation commit their time to work weekly with a student who is in need of a little extra encouragement and support. Volunteers are required to have a background check before being paired up with a student. In addition, volunteers go through special training procedures prior to working with students.When mentors and students are paired, parents sign a consent form allowing the student to work with the mentor each week. The consent form also gives the mentor access to the students’ grades and parent numbers so the parent and volunteer can communicate. Mentors consult with teachers on academic weak areas and work with students on a weekly basis. The mentoring takes place at the school, where mentors and students meet weekly. In some cases, mentors offer assistance and help families in fulfilling specific needs such as food, Christmas gifts and etc… Eaton mentors often serve as another ear and are available for students to talk about his or her feelings. Mentors encourage students to do their best in and out of school. They work with students concerning social skills and are consistently corresponding and sharing with the school counselor any concerns. As previously stated mentors view grades and work to make sure their program is effective by assisting students academically and behaviorally.Teachers provide Eaton Mentors a form explaining the academic needs of the students being served and the mentors use that to address those needs throughout the year. At the end of the year, mentors evaluate the progress of their students through a survey.
