High School-Student to Student Mentoring

The Student to Student mentoring program at SHS was created with the purpose of enabling students to set positive goals for their lives and have the opportunities and tools to accomplish them. Also, the program aims to bring a diverse student group together to learn from one another's unique experiences, strengths, and challenges.

Mentors

Juniors and seniors who have been selected through an application process and have completed mentor training.

Mentees

Freshmen and sophomores who complete the application process and commit to one year. A diverse group of mentees are desired in order to learn from one another and take on positive risks.

Mentee Application

Mentoring in Action

Student to Student mentoring starts with a fall overnight retreat, mid-year field trips, optional social events and culminates in the spring with an overnight retreat at the Columbus Youth Camp. The mentors and mentees are encouraged to meet face-to-face at least once every other week. Students can meet in or outside of school based on schedules and parental preference.

Middle School-SMS Mentoring

The SMS mentoring program aims to offer middle school students who struggle in a traditional classroom setting a chance to motivate themselves to succeed through a variety of experiential education initiatives and a consistent, positive role model through the support of their high school mentors.

Mentoring in Action

Mentors meet their mentees at Shelbyville Middle School twice monthly. At these meeting times on Wednesdays after school with transportation provided, mentors and mentees participate in an experiential activity that kicks off each session with a focus topic and then moves into relational time in their small mentoring groups. Mentors and mentees are paired in small groups with two high school mentors to three middle school mentees
