Mentoring Matters

Be Who You Needed When You Were Younger

During the spring semester of the 2017–18 school year, AISD Mentoring promoted the first annual Mentoring Matters Poster Contest in order to obtain student artwork highlighting the value and importance of mentoring. The following image was selected.


Mentoring poster drawn by a fifth grade student mentee from Padron Elementary. The poster contains the heading Austin ISD Mentoring. Centered within the design are the words Be Who You Needed when you were younger.   A collage featuring a child and adult sitting under a tree are highlighted.  At the bottom the call to action "Become A Mentor Today!" is listed.  Followed by the subtext More than 3,000 Austin ISD students benefited from mentoring services during the 2017-2018 school year.  AISD Mentoring is committed to ensuring quality mentoring for 5,000 students annually.  Please support us in our efforts by mentoring this school year and be who you needed when you were younger.
