Check & Connect Mentorship

Expelled and At-Risk Students Services (EARSS) has partnered with Loveland community volunteers, Colorado State University and the University of Northern Colorado students for the new Check and Connect Mentorship initiative.  As we come to a close we want to celebrate that we have at least 1-2 mentors in each secondary school.  

Check and Connect Mentorship is a targeted intervention intended to help support and mentor our At-Risk youth grades 6-12 in Thompson School District during school hours. An important focus of Check and Connect Mentorship is the shift from preventing negative outcomes (dropout, suspension, office referrals) to promoting positive outcomes (general student support, school success and school completion). Check and Connect mentorship is an intervention designed to enhance student engagement at school and with learning.

TSD’s mentorship initiative has promoted student engagement by providing persistent support to boost academic, behavior, and expectations for underachieving and disengaged students.  A volunteer mentor works with students and partners with families by regularly checking their educational and social progress to enhance the student’s connection to school-home.  

What are the four components?

·      A mentor keeps education moving forward

·      A mentor systematically monitors (the “check” component)

·      A mentor has a timely and individualized intervention (the “connect” component)
