National Mentoring Month - Guss Walls Serves Students Daily
City Year plays a unique role in our schools not only offering academic and after-school support, but also the mentorship we are able to provide students in attendance, behavior, and preparation for their future. City Year AmeriCorps Members work with students every week to set student directed goals to encourage students to take initiative over their everyday decision making. In honor of January being National Mentoring month, I wanted to share some of the extraordinary work that one of my team members is doing to go above and beyond the weekly check in and check out with our students.
