Parent Mentor Program

Since 2017, St. Stephen’s Youth Programs has worked in collaboration with the Blackstone School on the Parent Mentor Program. Through this program, Parents work in classrooms, develop their own leadership skills, and become more aware of conditions inside the school helping parents and schools build mutual trust.

The Parent Mentor Program begins with a week of Leadership Training. For the rest of the year, Parent Mentors work two hours a day supporting student learning in classrooms by leading small-group breakouts and working one-on-one with individual students. On Fridays, they meet to debrief the week and participate in leadership training.
