Helping Hands Male Mentoring Progam

  • HH Logo


    On behalf of the Male Mentors of The Helping Hands Mentoring Program, we would like to welcome your Wilburn Student to join us every Wednesday afterschool at Wilburn, from 4:15 – 5:30, for an afternoon of enrichment, educational aspects and fun.  Your student will need to be recommended by your teacher, and then approved by you to stay afterschool.  The 24 boys chosen will have homework time between 3:45 – 4:15. They’ll be given a snack, and will have the opportunity to burn off some energy; with the remaining time dedicated to their participation in the Helping Hands Program.  Please pick up from school at 5:30. Any students who have not been picked up past 5:45 will be exited from the program. 

    The dates are as follows: Wednesdays Only
