Floridians urged to mentor students
Department of Education releases video
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Education released a video Tuesday to inspire Floridians to mentor a student.
"Our state's students are truly our greatest asset and I believe that, as adults, we should make it a priority to invest in their futures," said Commissioner Pam Stewart. "As we approach the start of a new school year, I hope this video motivates each Floridian to find one hour each week to help a student thrive."
In the Why I Mentor video, Department of Education staff members share their experience with mentoring.
If you are interested in mentoring, please contact your local school district.
