New Peer Mentor Program introduced at Bellaire High School

New Peer Mentor Program introduced at Bellaire High School by Shayla Rosen

This year Bellaire High School is introducing a Peer Mentoring Program. The mentors are any junior or senior who is willing to give up some of their time to talk to freshman students to help get involved in the school and extra-curricular activities. A mentor is meant to be a guide and most importantly a friend.

Each mentor is assigned a mentee(s) and is expected to meet and talk to that student regularly. To be chosen as a mentor, a person must follow the following criteria:

  • Good attendance at the school
  • No discipline referrals to the office
  • Passing all classes
  • Teacher approved

 These peers are meant and would like to help make a better life for others. “My goal is to see good changes in my mentee such as making more friends and being more open with others” says junior Dallas Swegard.

This year’s program has juniors Jewel Chirpas, Megan McCarthy, Shayla Rosen, Kylie Smelko, and Dallas Swegard and seniors Joseph Harbaugh, Kaycee Tantillo, and Kaisha Violet.

Senior mentor Kaycee Tantillo explained “I decided to be part of the peer mentor program because I understand what it is like to go to a new school and how hard it is making new friends. I want to try to make a difference with the freshmen in hopes they succeed in their future.”

There will be an assembly for the freshmen class to introduce the new program.
