Chalk Talk: How Student Mentoring Improves Schools
Student mentorship programs are becoming increasingly popular in schools throughout the nation. Mentorship programs have a proven track record of reducing bullying, gossiping and other negative behaviors typically found in schools. Mentorship programs also improve student attendance and behavior. Older students are trained in how to be a mentor, and are then paired with a younger student or group of students to provide them with support. Older students model appropriate behaviors for younger students, teach them appropriate skills for managing stress and conflict, and spend leisure time with younger students. By building these relationships, students create a more positive school environment for all students and staff.
