Grimsley High School Mentorship

For the past three years, Westminster has partnered with Grimsley High School by providing mentors for their Success 101 program as part of our Outreach focus on Children in Poverty.  Last year Westminster had 14 adults serving as mentors for this innovative program and we're positive that number can grow in the years to come. Mentors and students are paired based on the mentor’s availability during school hours and meet weekly for one hour at Grimsley High School. If you would like to learn more and be included in an August interest meeting (date TBA) please write Grimsley on your Worship Response Card on Sunday morning or contact Ann Comfort (ann.comfort@westpreschurch.org) in the Church Office by Monday, August 12.
