Mentor

The CFISD Mentor Program is a partnership with volunteers from businesses, faith-based organizations, non-profit organizations, the community and CFISD to encourage students (elementary through high school) to finish school and focus on future education and career goals. A mentor is a suitable role model committed to helping a student with his/her academic and social development. Mentors meet with students one-on-one at the student’s campus for approximately 30 minutes each week. Mentors must be 18 years or older.

The steps to volunteer as a mentor are listed below.

  1. Complete a Global Volunteer/Mentor Application, including consenting to a criminal history record check.  You will receive account information and password from [email protected] (may take up to 10 business days) after your application is approved.
  2. Attend an education session (additional sessions will be added after May 2020);
     (held at the Berry Center, 8877 Barker Cypress Rd., Cypress, TX 77433)
  3. Partner with campus Community Engagement Mentor Liaison to be matched to a mentee.
  4. Log your mentor hours in the Raptor Volunteer Portal.  All volunteers who have recorded at least one volunteer hour in the current school year will receive an invitation to the annual VIPS Appreciation Luncheon.
  5. Present your driver's license at the school's front desk each time you volunteer and ask the receptionist to log you in as a mentor (not a visitor).  

    If you have any questions about your mentor status, please call 281-894-3950.
