• In GCPS, we believe in the Power of One… one caring adult mentor can change a child’s life. While school counselors, teachers, and family members all play a role in keeping students in school and learning, the involvement of a community mentor can make a meaningful, lasting connection.

    The Community-Based Mentoring program pairs caring adults with male and female students in grades 4 through 12 to provide guidance, encouragement, and support to help them become successful young adults, both in and out of school.
