Positive Directions Mentoring Program

INTEGRIS Health began the Positive Directions Mentoring Program in 1992 as a business/school partnership that encourages volunteer mentoring at targeted public elementary schools. The objectives of the program are to build self-esteem, establish positive relationships, help children overcome negative behaviors, improve student classroom participation and support teachers.

The time commitment is only one hour per week, during school hours, at the school site. Mentors come from all walks of life - professionals, college students, retirees, Moms, Dads, anyone with a caring heart and an hour a week to share.

One mentor shared,

"So many times I felt good knowing I was making a difference in a child’s life. But what I didn’t expect was the impact my student made on my own life. Mentoring is such a positive experience that I can’t imagine NOT doing it. All it takes is a little time."

Positive Directions is an exciting and rewarding project that leads our community and its most valuable resources—our children—into the future. Get involved in the education process in your community.

One person makes a difference.
