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.
