Volunteer: Success Club Mentor

Holmes STEM Academy’s Success Club got its start thanks to the My Brother's Keeper Initiative, the dedication of Principal Thomas, and the Community Education Initiative (CEI).

The Success Club program focuses to help students stay on track and give them a chance to have an adult role model to look up to. 

Many of our students suffer from Chronic Absenteeism which is defined as missing 10 percent of a school year for any reason. Some think that a couple absences per month isn't a “big deal,” but if you take those two absences per month x 10 months of school = 20 days of missed school. Students who fall under this category are at a very high risk of retention and ultimately, not graduating.


We are seeking those who have love, compassion, and patience for children in their heart. If you want to make a positive impact on a student's life, this is the volunteer opportunity for you.

We ask that you be able to commit to at least two days per week.

Lunch is the best time to meet with your mentee,

but other times can be arranged as well. 

Each day will include a 30-minute session. We have activities and books that can be used during your time as a Mentor. This is also a good opportunity to offer homework help, if your mentee needs or prefers that.
