Tiger Mentoring Program

The Excelsior Springs Tiger Mentoring Program is a program which matches students (K-12) with an adult mentor, or Tiger Friend. Tiger Mentoring provides a safe, structured framework for mentoring activities that include simple one-one mentoring sessions, lunch buddy programs, tutoring, reading and even things like school to work transition or college coaching.

It’s a great way to get involved and make a positive impact on the youth of Excelsior Springs, as the mentoring activities can be structured to fit the situation, age, and schedule of the Tiger Friend and student. All mentoring activities are done on school property and organized by the district’s Tiger Mentoring coordinators, Kim Curtis and Margaret Solis. There is no financial obligation for volunteers and time commitment is very minimal.

Who are the Tiger Mentor volunteers?

Tiger Mentors, or Tiger Friends, are positive support persons who act as non-judgmental listeners, overall friends. The role of a mentor is simply to be a friendly and encouraging presence to a student. Tiger Mentors ARE NOT: teachers helpers, counselors, therapists, special education teacher or substitute parents.
