In our continued efforts to enhance the effectiveness of the ‘Home School’ experience, Phoenix is introducing a teen mentor program.
What is a teen mentor ?
A teen mentor will:
- Be partnered with your student to support the children during registered classes
- Help student redirect problem behavior
- Assist child with social skills
- Will provide supervision should the student need to leave class
- Provide educational assistance with academic tasks in class.
To Book :
- Register for classes.
- Notify Ms. Karen of time and date of first class – we will send you an info package so the mentor knows a little about your student
- A teen mentor will be paired with your student – subject to availability.
- Teen mentors will coordinate with the classroom instructor, the learning coach, and the program coordinator to help provide the best experience for your student in the classroom.
There will be a minimum charge of $2.50 an hour for those interested in taking advantage of this opportunity with Phoenix covering the remaining $8.50 an hour from the grant that we have applied for from Alberta Ed.
We ran a test pilot of this program through December with excellent responses from the instructors, parents, students and mentors.
