MENTOR PROGRAM 2019, 2020: Creating a pipeline of musicians from elementary school through middle school to high school and beyond!
The Costa music mentors program is doing very well in its inaugural year! We have over 62 high school mentors in our program who are mentoring both elementary and middle school students.
- Holiday Mentor Gift for 33 Mentors – received donations from elementary parents and MIMEAA to fund gifts
- Elementary Students (mentees): provided with the opportunity for one-on-one 30 minute sessions on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month. Our mentors have provided more than 300 sessions so far this year (2019-2020)!
Expanding Our Mentor Program to…
- MBMS: our high school mentors at the middle school level are attending MBMS sectionals on an ongoing weekly basis, working under the guidance and direction of Mrs. Haslop.
Benefits for MCHS Band Mentors…
- Through the Mentor Program our mentors are gaining invaluable experience in teaching and leadership, are able to share their passion for music with the younger students, are giving back to programs they participated in while building relationships and obtaining community service hours.
