MHS High Schoolers Kick Off Annual Mentorship Program
On Wednesday, Sept. 13, Milton Hershey School’s Senior Division Student Government Association organized a kick-off breakfast for this year’s high school mentorship program. Staff and students were paired based on similar interests to build meaningful connections throughout the school year and beyond.
A total of 255 high school students signed up to participate in the mentoring program—this is more than the number of students who participated in the program for the past two years combined.
“This speaks volumes of our students,” said Michelle Weber, MHS Student Government Association Coordinator. “They’re truly saying to us that they want to make a connection, they want a difference maker, and they want to have a relationship with an adult to help them through the bad and good days.”
Students and staff gathered for breakfast to get to know one another and learn more about how Milton Hershey emphasized character-building and mentorship when he founded MHS.
Mentorship is a powerful tool that can help students of all ages feel confident, supported, and motivated. Learn more about how Milton Hershey School students and staff benefit from mentorship opportunities.
