The Community In-School and the Teen Mentoring programs will soon be wrapping up for the school year.  Thanks to all the mentors who gave their time to a young elementary student.  If you are interested in participating in the program, please give us a call, 992-7257.  We can prepare you to start at an elementary school in the fall.
