Mentor NOW Program

The Mentor NOW Program pairs volunteer mentors with students in the Binghamton City School District.  

Mentors spend an hour each week at their mentee's school participating in one-on-one activities with their mentee. The Mentor NOW program aims to promote academic advancement, improve attendance and support behavior enrichment by connecting students with mentors who boost self-esteem, improve social skills and support academic activties.

The BCSD Mentor NOW Program is part of the New York State Mentoring Program, founded in 1984.
