Change A Life Mentoring Program

What is mentoring?

Mentoring is a one to one caring, supportive relationship between an adult and a youth that is based on trust. This relationship focuses on the needs of the youth and encourages them to develop to their fullest potential based on their own vision for the future.

The mission of the Mooresville Graded School District mentoring program is to encourage and support students to become successful academically, personally, and socially.

Mentoring has been a practiced art of developing and maintaining positive and helpful human relationships for hundreds of years, by nearly every culture, in various individuals and groups, and in many different ways.  With this in mind, Mooresville Graded School District implemented the Change-A-Life mentoring program.  Several years into this program, the Change-A-Life mentoring committee and site coordinators at each school have established a successful program for our students and all involved have experienced the enormous value mentoring is to individuals and societies and the life-changing results it can have for both the mentee and the mentor.  Program success is only possible with the support of the business community, faith-based organizations, social agencies, service institutions, and our schools.  We hope you will consider getting involved as a mentor today!
