S.T.A.R. Mentor Program
The S.T.A.R. (Students Taking Action Responsibly) Program combines life-skills workshops with mentorship. Students attend 3 workshops and meet their mentors at Brightway the 2nd Saturday of each month for an activity. A college visit, job site visit and field trips are also included. Topics range from Resilience, Social Media Awareness to Communication and Financial Literacy.
According to youth.gov, some of the positive effects on mentees are:
improved behavior, both at school and at home
healthier relationships and lifestyle choices
stronger relationships with parents, teachers and peers
decreased likelihood of initiating drug and alcohol use
