Kansas City Public Schools Mentoring Programs
Kansas City Public Schools has embraced a district-wide strategy to engage more students in school-based mentoring programs. Mentoring within schools has become an increasingly popular and effective way to bring a caring adult or older peer relationship to the lives of more youth. The school setting provides an opportunity to reach a larger number of students in an environment that also allows access to educational, recreational, and developmental supports to help enhance mentoring relationships. Our programs are designed to equip each student with the unique type of support that best meets their needs.
