Mentoring sessions are held at Friedens Church in thirty-minute increments from 3:30-6:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school year. Students and mentors will be matched as appropriately as possible based on scheduling availability as well as unique student needs. At the beginning of the mentoring relationship and periodically thereafter, a mentor will meet with the student and parent(s) to discuss goals, progress, and ways to improve our support efforts.
All services of Turning Point Learning Community (TPLC) are offered free of charge.

TPLC's Mentors

Turning Point Learning Community mentors have been screened and trained in order to develop safe, meaningful relationships with students and to provide positive adult role-modeling as well as educational support. Each mentor has the desire to help students reach their full potential by instilling confidence within the student of his or her own abilities. Mentors will always seek to provide a comfortable and nurturing environment to help the child grow and succeed.
