According to Robin Pletcher, AP Psychology and K-8 Mentoring teacher, the mentors will continue to go out and spend time with their mentees from the Carmel elementary and middle schools.

She said, “I feel like (students) benefit because they are giving back to the community, they are learning how their behavior reflects on others, learning how to have a positive influence on somebody’s life, and just to be a big friend to somebody.”

Mentor and junior Kiara Gill said she joined the class to make a positive impact on her community.

“I joined K-8 because it seemed like a really fun experience and I love little kids,” she said. “I felt like any way I could help them would be a great opportunity just to help out and meet more kids in the community and be a positive influence.”
