Community Advisers serve as volunteer mentors to students in SLP. All mentoring in SLP is facilitated at SLP events and in a group setting with other teachers and community advisers. Serving as a community adviser is a rewarding experience to make a difference in the lives of students in the community and to network with other teacher and community advisers.
Community Advisers are assigned a specific group of students to mentor and facilitate leadership workshop activities at each SLP session. All activities and materials will be provided to advisers in advance of each session. Community advisers must be at least 20 years old and complete the required online training.
There are six SLP events throughout the academic year which take place during the day at different locations in Chatham County. Community Advisers should be able to commit to attending at least five of the events. SLP events include the Kick-Off Celebration, Leadership Sessions (four per year) and the Year-End Celebration. There are also opportunities for Community Advisers to participate in the SLP Summer Programs which include SLP Serves community service day and summer experience trips.
