The Bowie Prevention Network has coordinated the Teen Mentoring Program
at Bowie High School since 2002. When you volunteer to mentor a Bowie
High School student you will spend one hour a week building a positive
relationship with a student that has the potential to change the course
of a teens high school experience, their life, and your community.
Through this program students receive a stable, caring and nurturing
relationship with an adult mentor with the goal of adding to the
student’s sense of personal confidence and importance.
The Teen Mentoring Program (TMP) at Bowie High School seeks to match
students with an adult volunteer mentor for the duration of the
academic year. Mentors and teens meet weekly, usually at lunch, during
the school day; both voluntarily participate and contribute to the
success of the program.
The TMP invites men and women to apply to be Mentors if you are willing to:
Make a commitment to a teen for the school year.
Meet weekly with a teen, usually at lunch.
Agree to an interview and security screening.
Attend initial mentor training and occasional follow-up trainings.
