Welcome to Study Connection!
Every child can benefit from the experience of having an additional positive role model in their life! And every adult volunteer has something to offer. Simply spending time with and listening to a young child can change his or her life forever.*Mentoring helps students make better choices.
What is a Mentor?
A mentor is a positive role model who provides a young person with guidance, support and encouragement.
A mentor is a good listener, a cheerleader and a sounding board.
A mentor is NOT a therapist, a baby-sitter or a surrogate parent.
Study Connection was founded in 1992 by the Clinton Rotary Club. Club members were concerned with the number of students who fell behind in reading. The group was committed to the idea that third grade students, if given the support of dedicated adults and peers, had the ability to improve their reading abilities and comprehension.
