Hancock County Still Looking For a Few Good Mentors

We still have openings for three mentors at this year’s Energy Express summer reading and nutrition program. If you are a college or college bound student, enjoy working with children, and are looking for a way to earn money toward your education, please consider the Energy Express opportunity.

The award winning Energy Express summer reading/nutrition program has become a summertime staple in our area and the benefits for children are well documented. But, what about the mentors? What’s in it for them? As it happens, quite a bit!

The Material Stuff

  • A living allowance of $1,850 which is subject to all state and federal taxes.
  • Valuable training before and during Energy Express.
  • A Segal AmeriCorps Education Award in the form of a voucher for $1,221 (available October 2017).
  • An opportunity to earn college credit (arrangements made individually).

The Stuff Money Can’t Buy

There is a reason mentors tend to come back year after year. Plainly put, being an Energy Express mentor is one of the most soul-satisfying jobs you’ll ever have. Faced with a group of children who are struggling with reading, you are tasked with helping them to read better and, by doing so, you change the world.

A child who has trouble reading often struggles with other subjects, as well. Mentors know reading is the cornerstone of all other learning; reinforcing a child’s reading skills through writing, art, and drama means you not only increase his ability to read but, also, his ability to do well in other studies.
