Pinellas schools seek 500 more mentors for students



Pinellas County schools currently have more than 2,000 adults volunteering as mentors to students. The district wants to boost that number by at least 500 more.

“All children need and deserve at least one adult in their life who will listen to them and guide them and cheer for them. Mentors truly do change lives, and even a small investment of time can provide a lifetime of rewards,” said Michelle Roberge, district coordinator of Family and Community Relations. “We’re asking our community members to consider mentoring a Pinellas County student.” 

Mentors help students with academics, extracurricular activities, college plans and other areas of interest. Interested? Contact Roberge at (727) 588-6405 or
