The Prince George's County Board of Education and School System wishes to thank all our Mentors for participating in the Board of Education's Mentoring Initiative during this fall. We encourage ALL mentors to contact your mentees during the holiday season. The upcoming Mentor Orientation and Mentor Match Meeting scheduled for December 17th, 6:30 p.m. has been cancelled; however, the Mentoring Initiative will resume January 5, 2009 and dates for the next Mentoring Orientation will be announced shortly thereafter. Happy Holidays to All!
The Prince George's County Board of Education is seeking nonprofit organizations and community partners to provide mentors for Prince George's County public school students. The Board of Education, in collaboration with the Prince George's County Public Schools (PGCPS) Division of Student Services, is hosting the Mentor Orientation sessions.
Mentors only working with students in a supervised setting are required to have a commercial background check at a cost of $7. Anyone with unsupervised access to students must first submit to a full criminal history, fingerprint background check at a cost of $61. For more information, contact Judith James, Executive Director of the Board of Education, by calling 301-952-6333 or emailing Judith.James@pgcps.org.
