Mentoring with Denton ISD
Become a mentor. Help strengthen our community.
All children have the potential to succeed in life and contribute to society. However, not all children get the support they need to thrive. Mentoring happens when caring individuals provide young people with support, advice, friendship, reinforcement, and constructive examples. Mentoring can and does help young people succeed, no matter what their circumstances! At its most basic level, mentoring helps because it lets young people know that they have others who care about them, and who will listen to their dreams and help them achieve their goals.
Learn more about campus-specific mentoring by contacting a campus mentor. For more information or questions about the program, please contact Denton ISD's Community Engagement Team at:
