August 2018 Newsletter

Our AmeriCorps Firewall Mentors and Lead Mentors attended our training to prepare for the school year!

“I joined Firewall…because I wanted to be a mentor to kids and teach them things I never got taught,” said Stacy, Firewall Lead Mentor.

The majority of the students we serve are below grade level in Language Arts and Math. The Mentors are excited to help them improve and make a difference!

Our staff also received leadership training from a PeopleTek Executive Coach, Pat Pinera. They learned more about situational leadership and their unique personality DISC profiles.

Our desire is to see each Mentor flourish both professionally and personally!
