If you have ever been mentored by someone, it’s easy to understand how important it was in determining your path in life. And now you are able to share your knowledge and leadership with the next generation. The Maumelle Area Chamber of Commerce Educational Committee will be working closely with Maumelle High School to provide a program where students and business leaders can work towards the future.
The Maumelle Area Chamber of Commerce Educational Committee had dedicated their time and efforts to help our students by providing an opportunity for professional development, share community connections, establish partnership programs in Maumelle, and motivate students within the education system.
The Educational committee meets the second Tuesday of each month during the school year.
Mentoring Program Volunteer Opportunities
Connect with students during a catered lunch from 11:30 to 1:00pm. This gives the students the opportunity to ask you key questions on what companies look for in employees, how to act when they are on the job, life lessons, and so much more. This is a great opportunity to motive and inspire students.
Become a Classroom Mentor
Volunteer just 30 minutes of your time each month to an assigned classroom for the year. Each volunteer is assigned a teacher contact and a classroom. You will be provided materials needed to start the mentoring program and have a teacher to help guide you. This is a great way for students not only to learn from you, but make that contact for the future.
Join us on February 24th as business leaders and teachers come together for lunch to discuss what skills need to be taught in the classroom. This allows our teachers prepare our students for a career and a stronger future.
Can’t volunteer a lot of time? MHS and the Chamber have several opportunities and programs that we will help motivate and educate our students. You can be apart of this program by becoming a sponsor for several of our events. Please contact Tara Davidson at the Maumelle Chamber for more information.
