Resources

For those interested in learning more about peer mentoring programs such as those provided by Focus Stars, we've compiled the following list of resources. Here you can review information on the benefits of peer mentoring, after school activities, the importance of staff to remain involved beyond matching a mentor to a student, and more. We believe that the more you know, the more successful mentors will be at positively influencing their mentees and developing valuable relationships that further the success of all involved individuals. We strive to provide assistance in as many ways as possible to all who need it. The resources provided are to be used at the discretion of the individual and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of Focus Stars and / or our staff and volunteers.
