Check and Connect
Students who are disengaged from school with poor attendance, behavioral issues, and/or low grades might just need a little encouragement. Our Check and Connect mentors monitor students’ performance and teach them how to set personal goals and become more independent and responsible. They also reinforce there are people in the community who want every student to be successful. This program is available to students attending Jefferson Elementary School or Carl Ben Eielson Middle School. By learning about students’ likes, dislikes, struggles, and talents, our mentors are able to build relationships and hold students accountable for their actions. Our mentors work closely with the school as well as the family in order to ensure student needs are being met so they can thrive.
