Ashtabula County Mentorship Program
The Mentorship Program, offered through the Ashtabula County Schools in cooperation with Growth Partnership For Ashtabula County, provides an opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to explore a career or field of interest with a mentor in the private sector. It is an opportunity for a student to experience an occupation and for the mentor to share his/her enthusiasm about the profession with a young person who has the same interest. Students and mentors are asked to spend a minimum of 35 to 50 hours on the work site, and students must complete a related project.
Applicants are selected on the basis of student commitment to the project, maturity, capability, interest, teacher/staff recommendation, and grade point average.
This year over 80 students from the following high schools completed this valuable learning experience: Edgewood High School, Conneaut High School, Geneva High School, Grand Valley High School, Jefferson High School, Lakeside High School, Pymatuning Valley High School, and Saints John and Paul High School.
