4-H volunteer mentors needed

The Mentor-Student Program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County 4-H is recruiting volunteers.

Be a mentor with a middle school student needing support, and make a real difference. Meet with your student from 3:25-4:40 twice a week. Receive in-depth training and on-going support. Commit for one school year. A college degree is not needed.

If you don’t wish to mentor, volunteer help with financial records, media and public relations, or basic filing is needed to run this program.
