After School Program Mentors will be people from the Rhode Island area who guide, support, and encourage the students. Acting as role models, the mentors develop a relationship with the students that takes them beyond the classroom and outside of the squash courts. Events could include a trip to the Newport Creamery or a trek along the famous Cliff Walk!
Mentoring will be voluntary, and each student will be paired with an appropriate partner. The After School Program Mentors support and help guide students in the process for entry into higher educational opportunities.
As RhodySquash students advance through the program, they will serve as role models, inspiring and mentoring the younger students joining the team. This will encourage a supportive atmosphere and promote team building across all ages.
