SpringBoard Mentor program is the umbrella program for community-supported mentor programs throughout Spring Branch ISD. The program is grounded in extensive research affirming that all children and young adults benefit from the consistent presence of a caring adult serving as a role model, advocate and friend.
At-risk young people with mentors were more likely to aspire to attend and to enroll in college. They were more likely to report participating in sports and other extracurricular activities. They also were more likely to report taking leadership roles in school and extracurricular activities, and to regularly volunteer in their communities.
With just a small investment of time each week as a mentor, you can make a big difference in the life of a young person in SBISD.
Please note: Due to COVID-19, volunteers are not allowed in SBISD facilities at this time. However, we invite you to be proactive and submit your application for the 2020-2021 school year so you have this process completed once we are able to welcome you back into our schools. Please check back for updates for the 2020-2021 training registration.
2. Attend Training:
Once your application is approved (can take 5-7 days), you will receive an email. New Mentor Trainings are provided from September through early March. Please check back for updates on new mentor training dates.
