Purpose of the Program:

Junior 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 junior-level student.  The purpose of this program is to match successful community professionals with aspiring high school juniors 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 as he/she is making decisions regarding where to go to college/university and/or what major or career to pursue upon graduating from high school.


Time Commitment (1-2 hours per month):

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 1-2 hours of mentorship time per month to their assigned student(s) during the period of October through April of this current school year.

The monthly time commitment is a recommendation, but could be modified and/or broken up in to several sessions, as needed, to meet the needs of the students and the community/business partner.
  The meetings are to be informal in nature, and the CTE Department will 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 one- to two-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 communitybusiness partner.
