MENTORS!

  • The Mentoring Program at NTPS is a unique opportunity for our students to be matched with community members to share experience - with the ultimate goal of enhancing and empowering NTPS students and their outlook on the future.

    Students are connected to a mentorship opportunity that best serves their strengths, goals, and dreams. Mentors are asked to have a weekly meeting with their mentee at their school for 20-30 minutes a week, helping them discuss, set, and achieve their goals.
