  • Complete and submit the initial Take Stock in Children of Broward Mentor Application and all annual renewal forms.

  • Attend a mandatory training session before mentoring begins.

  • Pass a Level 2 Security Clearance with the School Board of Broward County.

  • Meet with a student once per week for at least 30 minutes at the school site or virtually.

  • Help a student build a foundation of basic values.

  • Challenge a student to take responsibility for their actions.

  • Help a student set (and reach) their goals.

  • Improve a student’s self-esteem.

  • Communicate his or her own mentoring needs to our Community Outreach and Mentor Coordinator.

  • Communicate his or her student’s needs to TSIC Staff or school's TSIC liaison.
