Another area of concern was keeping track ofrepparttar number of mentors inrepparttar 109309 program. Overrepparttar 109310 years we have reduced this number - first we cut back to onlyrepparttar 109311 professional staff having mentees. Staff who wanted to be mentors and hadrepparttar 109312 knack for working with these problematic students were asked to be mentors. A few educational assistants were also asked also because of their expertise in this area also.

Dramatic results were reported with a group of middle school girls. One ofrepparttar 109313 girls had to actually break away fromrepparttar 109314 group of girls who were bullying, so she could improve her reputation as a respectful and serious student. This was a difficult process, and she had 2 mentors working with her to help her make this difficult peer group change. The parent/guardian was not supportive. Byrepparttar 109315 end ofrepparttar 109316 school year, she had completely changed groups of friends, maderepparttar 109317 honor roll, and received a multitude of awards for academic excellence atrepparttar 109318 quarterly awards assembly.
