Back to School Resources

As we are gearing up for a new school year of mentoring students, we want to set you up with plenty of resources to enrich your mentoring sessions.

Check out our August Mentor Newsletter for grade-specific roadmaps, mentoring ideas and much more!

Please note, HEF’s Take Stock Team expects to receive students’ schedules from the school district towards the end of August. As soon as we receive them, College Success Coaches will email mentors their student’s schedule!

Volunteering Events

This summer, the Take Stock team facilitated four awesome volunteer events. We served at Sweetwater Farms, Clothes to Kids, Metropolitan Ministries and Feeding Tampa Bay. It was a great opportunity to serve the community, connect with mentees and have fun.

If you didn’t get a chance to participate in these in-person events over the summer, we encourage you to join some of the mentor/mentee events we will offer throughout the school year!

Our August Mentor Spotlight is shining on Mary Priester!

When asked how she got involved with HEF mentoring program, she said, “I became aware of the Hillsborough Education Foundation through my employment with the Hillsborough County School District. As an employee of the school district, I was aware of the positive impact that caring adults can make in the life of a child, and I decided to become involved as a mentor.”
