Mt. Ararat Middle School partners with two local organizations to provide school day and after-school mentoring services for our students. Both Big Brothers/Big Sisters and Bowdoin College train student volunteers and match them with young people in need of encouragement and support. These programs are designed to assist students who are in the process of finding their way through school and the daily challenges of life. Each fall, teachers and counselors recommend students for new or continuing placement in these programs. If you would like to refer your child for one of these mentoring options, please contact your child’s school counselor. Participation in Mt. Ararat Middle School mentoring programs is entirely voluntary and requires parental consent.
