Ashland Open Door – Mentoring Programs
May 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Ashland Open Door is shifting its focus to ensure the best and highest use of time and resources in supporting at risk children in the greater Ashland area. As part of this, AOD is partnering with the four Ashland-area schools (Henry Clay, Gandy, Liberty and Patrick Henry) to initiate mentoring programs at each of these schools. Many children benefit greatly from positive adult roles models and relationships. Some of this already occurs in the schools, but much more is needed.
Attached is a flyer that announces an informational meeting for all interested parties regarding this important initiative. The meeting is being held on Wednesday, May 30, 6:30 at Henry Clay Elementary School. There will be an opportunity to sign up as a mentor for the coming school year (starting in September) at the meeting. There will also be an opportunity to sign up later for those of you who will need time to consider it.
Please attend on May 30 if at all possible, and share this information with everyone you know who has an interest in the at risk children of Ashland.
