The Mentor Center is a face-to-face, drop-in resource center for middle and high school students to receive academic, social-emotional, and technology support. The center supports students with academic staff, mental health professionals, and on-site technical assistance. To further enhance the learning environment, enrichment activity centers are embedded and focused on art, music, STEM, and social-emotional activities. Free snacks and grab-and-go cold meals are available and provided by the Grand Forks Public Schools Child Nutrition Department.
All students are welcome to come to the Mentor Center any time. If you'd like our Mentor Center staff to reach out to a student or family, please fill out the referral form and we'll extend a personal invitation.
The online form is available here.
As a drop-in facility, the Mentor Center will monitor students' arrivals and departures. Parents/Guardians wishing to be notified of their student's departures should reach out to the Mentor Center to set up arrangements.
Some optional Mentor Center programming will involve off-site activities nearby reached on foot. All activities will be supervised by staff. Parents/Guardians who do not want their student to participate should contact the Mentor Center.
To ensure the Mentor Center maintains a positive, welcoming environment for all, our Code of Conduct establishes expectations for students. Students and parents/guardians sign a Personal Responsibility Agreement to acknowledge acceptance of the Code.
