Muskegon Opportunity Hosts Mentor Training Workshop
Caring, committed adults needed to mentor local high school students

Muskegon, Mich., Aug. 24, 2010 — Muskegon Opportunity is hosting a mentor training workshop from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 31, in the Blue & Gold Room on the Muskegon Community College campus at 221 S. Quarterline Road.

Muskegon Opportunity is working to help local high-school juniors prepare for and enroll in the post-secondary education option of their choice, from a four-year college program to a professional training program; and caring, committed adults from all walks of life are vital to helping these students realize their goals.

Mentors will be good role models and help students navigate the path toward their dreams. Mentors focus on successfully earning a high school diploma, pursuing higher education and planning for a career.
