Date and Time: Thursday, August 8, 2019, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Location: 123 South Broad Street, Suite 1050, Philadelphia, PA 19109

Does your mentoring program work with middle school youth? Do you know how to support students and families in selecting the right Philadelphia High School for them? Are you familiar with the application requirements and deadlines for public, charter and private high schools?

Join MENTOR Independence Region for this FREE EVENT as we welcome GreatPhillySchools to learn more about Philadelphia’s high school selection process. Choosing a high school is an important decision for every Philadelphia student, and mentors and mentoring programs can provide needed tools, encouragement, and guidance as they navigate this complex process.

We’ll cover:

  • An overview of the high school selection process
  • Important deadlines for students
  • What middle school students can do in each grade to prepare for high school selection
  • The ways that mentors and mentoring programs can help to make this process easier for students

Join us for this first event of a series we’re calling MOCHAS & MENTORING where folks interested in mentoring can come together, drink some coffee, learn something new, and have a dialogue about what matters to youth, their families, and MENTORING!

Space is limited – Register today!
