Kenmore-Garfield Student Advocate Mentors

Thank you for your interest in becoming an Akron Promise student advocate at Kenmore-Garfield High School! This program has been developed to help students achieve their post high school objectives.  The role of the mentor is to help the student articulate their post high school objectives and find and achieve stepping stones to achieve them.  

All Akron Promise mentors are trained and have background clearances through iC.A.R.E Mentoring, the Akron Public Schools platform  for mentoring.

Mentors will meet with students in and out of school two or three times a month as well as remain in contact via e-mail or text as students take steps toward their goals with the guidance of their mentor.  Do you have one or two hours a month to work with these students?  If you have questions, please contact me via any of the methods below and let’s work together to change the lives of students in at Kenmore-Garfield High School!

To get the process started immediately, please contact me and then contact iC.A.R.E Mentoring by filling out this profile to register for training

Thank you.  We look forward to working with you soon!


Thank you,
Tom Ghinder
Founder, Akron Promise
