Mentors Foster Friendships

Every week, mentors from the Glen Cove community, including representatives from North Shore Day Camp in Glen Cove stop by Gribbin Elementary School to work with young children on various fun and informative projects while providing a little extra social-emotional support. Every visit carries a theme of the day and mentors and students get together in the school’s activities room to play games, create crafts and sometimes, even cook. Pictured here, mentors work closely with the children on creating winter-themed crafts.

Gribbin School teachers, teacher assistants and aides also participate in the mentoring program with children. Other elementary schools in the Glen Cove School District participate in similar mentoring programs with volunteers in the community. January is National Mentoring Month.
