and behaviors. It's a collaborative, community wide
effort to encourage our children to become happy, productive citizens. Local businesses, agencies, civic and faith groups and individuals are mentors in Wicomico public schools.

The Wicomico Mentoring Project, started in 1994, is a collaborative effort of the Wicomico County Board of Education, the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Salisbury Committee to help Wicomico County Public School children become productive, responsible citizens.
The Wicomico Mentoring Project provides adult role models who volunteer to work with Wicomico County students to improve their grades, attendance and behaviors. Matches are one-on-one and meet in the schools during the school day.
During the 2016-2017 School Year we are excited to four options of being a mentor. This is a type of "Alacarte" menu for mentoring. You can choose between 4 options;
1) Morning Breakfast Mentoring
2) Afternoon Lunch Mentoring
3) MD Business Round-table Mentoring
4) Traditional 1-on-1 Classroom Mentoring
Details for each can be found on our attached Wicomicio Mentoring Project Brochure.
By becoming a mentor you will help your student socially and academically.
The Wicomico Mentoring Project is a program of the Wicomico Board of Education, part of the Student Services Team.
