Personalize Students' Experience 
Success Mentor Corps

A Success mentor is any caring adult who works with chronically absent students to address the barriers that prevent them from coming to school. 

Mentors interact with their mentees during the school day at least three times each week. 

They are cheerleaders, advocates and motivators.
