Mentors @ Lee

In addition to our McCallum PALs, Lee Roadrunners are also welcoming Mentors to our campus!

Research indicates that youth participating in mentoring relationships:
  • Experience positive academic returns including better attendance, better attitudes towards school, and an increased likelihood of going on to higher education
  • Are less likely to initiate alcohol/drug use while being mentored and less likely to engage in some negative behaviors
  • Have more positive social attitudes and relationships
Austin Partners In Education mentors work one-on-one with Austin students during the school day. They help students improve their social and study skills, strengthen their communication skills, and build self-confidence. They inspire children to develop new interests, explore career possibilities, and achieve their personal and academic goals. Mentoring opportunities are available for students in any school and any grade within Austin ISD.

If you are interested in having a mentor for your child or know of someone who would be a positive mentor for our Lee Roadrunners, please contact Jaclyn Sepp at jsepp@austinisd.org or visit Austin Partners in Education at http://www.austinpartners.org/mentor
