Last Week's Program

Our speakers last week were from Food For His Children. They shared their work and future plans for sustainable improvements in Tanzania.


STRIVE Mentoring

What is STRIVE Mentoring?

In a nutshell STRIVE Mentoring connects mentors to students at Stillwater Area High School. These mentors ENGAGE, ENCOURAGE & CHALLENGE the students in the giving of their TIME, ATTENTION & CARE. This results in students who are INSPIRED, MOTIVATED and CONNECTED. 


The fulcrum of impact for STRIVE Mentoring is...YOU, the mentor.


Learn more by connecting to the resources on the STRIVE Mentoring website, which have been updated this week. 


What I need from all mentors—even those who’ve told me they are in for this year:

Your cell phone #:

the period(s) you want to volunteer: 7:10-7:35, 7:40-8:35, and/or 8:40-9:35

I think I will be able to make at least 7 of the 9 scheduled meetings: yes or no




An optional but exciting kick off Sun Sep 22 5:00-6:15 at a barn 10 mins north of Stillwater. I’ll have dinner for you, we’ll do some team building games for mentors and students, and we’ll have a lot of fun.

Regular meetings are all Fridays: Oct 4, Nov 8, Dec 6, Jan 3, Jan 31, Feb 7, Mar 6, Apr 3, May 1


If you are in, I would like to have your information by Fri Sep 20 and an RSVP if you are going to make the kick off on Sep 22 so I have enough food and games prepared.
