The Kern County Superintendent of Schools office announced today that its Kern Community Mentoring AmeriCorps program is seeking mentors for the upcoming school year. AmeriCorps Members deliver high-quality mentorships to 700 underserved students each year at school sites throughout Kern County with the goal of increasing student engagement, improving the school climate, and causing lasting positive changes. Full-time positions will be available from September 1, 2022 through May 31, 2023 at school sites in Arvin, Bakersfield, Delano, Kernville, Lost Hills, McFarland, Mojave, Tupman, and Wasco.
Kern County Mentoring AmeriCorps data has shown mentees display significant improvements in the areas of attendance, behavior, and academics.
“This is my second year serving because my first year of doing this work was such an amazing, rewarding, and fulfilling experience,” Jennifer Hart, a mentor serving Freedom Middle School.
