Join us for our next Food for Thought Luncheon from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27 at the Charleston Area Alliance. This session, led by Carey Sadowski of the Education Alliance, will focus on the new eMentoring program of the Education Alliance.
More than 6,900 West Virginia high school students dropped out of high school in 2009. That’s $1.8 billion in lost lifetime earnings in West Virginia for that class of dropouts alone. Today’s students are tomorrow’s work force! Mentoring is a way you can help ensure students are ready for the workforce.
This Food for Thought will include:
- How to mentor a student without leaving your home or office
- The obligation of being a mentor
- Benefits to you and your organization of being a mentor
- And more…
