Virtual Mentors

In just 30 minutes per week, you can change someone’s life.

YOU have the Power of One to make a difference in a student’s life.

Be a virtual mentor and make a positive difference in the life of a student. If you are a caring adult who has at least 30 minutes a week to spend with a student, you have the necessary skills for the job. As a virtual mentor, your role will be to:

• Meet with your student mentee virtually once a week for at least 30 minutes throughout the school year. *

• Offer guidance and support.

• Engage in conversation with your mentee.

• Assist with homework or classwork.

• Discuss goals and career options.

• Encourage your mentee’s academic, emotional, and social development.

* RCPS understands that business obligations may from time-to-time prevent you from keeping an appointment with your mentee. In the event of a conflict, please contact Deborah Neason, so your mentee can be informed and the meeting rescheduled. Your mentee considers your presence the most important part of the Mentoring program.

It is easy to become a virtual mentor . . .

Complete the online Mentor Application.

Participate in a background check. (There is no cost to you for this service.) Once your completed application is processed by RCPS Student Support Services, you will be contacted regarding a background check. All mentors must complete a

background check before being assigned a student.

Await your assignment. You will be assigned to a student within four weeks of an approved background check.

Attend a brief virtual orientation via Microsoft Teams.
