Learn what a difference :40 minutes can make! The Stanislaus County Employee Mentor Program is celebrating its 16th year. In 1999, Stanislaus County Chief Executive Office developed the mentor program to positively impact the lives of young people who are struggling in the classroom for various reasons. During this time frame, county employees and community partners have invested over 24,000 hours and over 500 mentors have served in six Modesto City Schools. Stanislaus County has one of the highest dropout rates in the state of California (23.6%) It is a local epidemic requiring a local, community driven solution to combat the potential barriers caused by either a low-self-esteem, lack of role models, disengagement, or a foreign language.

Over a :40 minute lunch hour, employees volunteer their time to change a young person’s life by helping them identify, grow and achieve their goals. Our mentor program uses a team based approach to better balance work and this wonderful experience. A team can be comprised of as many as three employees who rotate their mentor days, so the young person consistently receives a visit twice a week.

Thank you in advance for your gift of time...
