Mentoring Opportunities at DES!

If you would like to spend some quality time with one of our KinderStart-Fifth grade students, we have several mentoring opportunities available to you throughout the school year.   Click on the link below to get started.  We will need you to complete the application and return it to our Defiance County Mentoring Supervisor.  They will process your application, do a quick background check, offer training and you're all set!  We ask that you visit with your assigned student at least once a month, but encourage once a week (avg. time is 30 minutes).  This is a great opportunity to give back to your community and build the self-esteem of a child at the same time!  Win-Win!

The Defiance Elementary School day runs from 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.  Our doors unlock at 8:30 a.m. for arrival.
On scheduled two-hour delay days, our doors open at 10:30 a.m. for arrival.
