Flagler County Schools
Every day, hundreds of exciting opportunities for Flagler County Public School students take place because the members of the community care enough to get involved. School volunteers are people just like you -- community members, parents, grandparents, students, business people and seniors – who have discovered that spending time and sharing talents with students is an energizing and worthwhile experience. Being a mentor doesn't require any special skills – you simply need to be yourself. As you share your time and skills students' lives can change. Seeing students reach their potential and grow as individuals is a wonderful benefit of being a mentor. Mentoring is available for all children. Mentors truly do change lives, and even a small investment of time can provide a lifetime of rewards.
