First Things First
Student Tracker

Use the Student Tracker each time you meet with your student. Fill out the first part of the form together. The Student Tracker will be provided by your Site Coordinator or you can click the picture and print the student tracker example. 

The tracker is very important. It allows others to quickly understand what a student has done and how they can help, without wasting time. 

The activities listed are recommended action items that will help the student successfully prepare for education beyond high school. Most actions do not have to be done in order, but can be tailored to the needs of the individual student.

On the reverse side, make a brief notation of the date, volunteer hours and topics discussed each time you meet. 

The Volunteer Calendar has important deadlines and activities students should be focusing on each month. The calendar also breaks down recommended activities by grade.
Volunteers should compare the activities in the Volunteer Calendar and the Student Tracker to ensure that students are accessing all opportunities. 

Students may complete an intake survey before they begin mentoring; the ideal time for them to do so is during their first meeting with volunteers. 

Students will need to complete an exit survey (each year for middle school students and their senior year for high school students). A best practice is to encourage students to complete this exit survey during their last meeting of the year.
