Volunteers Needed for STMA High School STRIVE Program

posted Aug 15, 2011, 6:00 PM by St. Michael-Albertville Rotary Club
We are looking for volunteers to help with this year's STRIVE program at STMA Senior High School.
STRIVE is a mentoring program designed to help struggling STMA students improve their performance in school.
STRIVE, which stands for Students Taking a Renewed Interest in the Value of Education, is a Rotary International education program that partners volunteer community and business leaders with junior-year students who are in the bottom 1/3 of their class.  STRIVE mentors meet with students semi-monthly during the school day to teach them valuable life skills and tools to help them improve their attitude toward school, increase attendance, increase participation and raise their GPA. 
Volunteers are needed to participate as meeting facilitators or small group leaders at semi-monthly, one-hour STRIVE meetings at the high school during the school day. The Rotary Club also is seeking donations to help fund the program.
To volunteer or make a donation, contact Aaron Thomas at 952-476-7183.
