Student Mentorship Program

Purpose of the Program:

Senior year is a crucial time for high school students.  Oftentimes, these students are in need of a personal mentor whom has knowledge or work experience in their preferred career field, and that can help them obtain answers to some of their education- and/or career-related questions. 

The Sharyland ISD Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department
is currently seeking community and/or business partners whom are interested in mentoring a high school senior-level student.  The purpose of this program is to match successful community professionals with aspiring high school seniors to ensure that our students graduate from high school with a college and/or career ready mindset.  Simply put, the mentor’s role would be to provide guidance and support to the student mentee as he/she gets ready to leave for college/university, or even straight onto the workforce.


Time Commitment (Minimum of 12 Hours Total):

Each community/business partner will be assigned one to two students max.  Community/business partners that are interested in participating are encouraged to invest a minimum 12-hours of mentorship time to their assigned student(s) during the period of November through April of this current school year.

This time amounts to about four hours per month.  The four-hour monthly time commitment would be the ideal, but could be modified and/or broken up as needed to meet the needs of the students and the community or business partner.
  The meetings are to be informal in nature, and the CTE Department can provide information that can be used to guide the monthly discussions.  The long-term impact of mentoring can be life and career changing.   Are you ready to make a difference in a student’s life?


Timeline of Events:


The following timeline provides a listing of events that each community/business partner would be participating in.  As stated above, the four-hour monthly time commitment would be the ideal, but could be modified and/or broken up as needed to meet the needs of the students and the community or business partner.
