Hand in Hand Mentoring Together
Program stands at 64 volunteers and counting
Mentor bowling night --ASHLEYS
Hand in Hand Together Mentoring Program Liaison Harvin Council goes bowling with his mentee, Nicholas. The Safe Schools/Healthy Students mentoring program, administered by the United Way of Kershaw County, is currently recruiting additional mentors to serve fifth through eighth grade Kershaw County School District students.
Last year, the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) received a $300,000 mentoring grant, specifically targeted for students in fifth through eighth grades. Since then, 64 mentors have been approved and trained to serve students in all of school district’s elementary and middle schools. But if program director Margaret Lawhorn has anything to do with it, another 36 mentors will be added to the list before the end of the school year.
