Be A Middle School Mentor (BAMSM)

New Mentor

Be a Middle School Mentor (BAMSM) is a school-based mentoring program that matches caring, adult volunteers with middle school students to learn about real careers and jobs, to develop big dreams for their future, to understand the importance of doing well in school, and to have a positive adult role model.    

The BAMSM training will provide participants with an introduction to mentoring and give insight on what to expect as a mentor with the program. This training is appropriate to introduce new volunteers to the field of mentoring and to refresh current mentors on best practices.   

For more information on the program, please visit https://uwswpa.org/be-a-middle-school-mentor/. To sign up to become a BAMSM volunteer, please complete a mentor application.

As community leaders and as servant leaders, we are heartbroken by the recent tragedies and know that a genuine and ongoing commitment to real change is necessary to confront and combat racism.  We stand in solidarity with our peers, our neighbors, our colleagues and our friends with an even stronger resolve to be present, to listen, to learn and to act.  If there’s one thing we’ve learned in our 25 years of serving the community, it’s this: 

We are stronger together

We are committed to actively fighting racism and to using our voices for better.  We will continue to bring strength and hope; to foster meaningful conversations around change; to deliver services that are inclusive and will support all.  We encourage you to join us and find ways to improve race relations in our community and beyond.  Let’s all work toward better – better connection, better allyship, better love for one another.  Let’s work together to make this world a better place for our kids.  Now is the time and they’re depending on us.
