- We WELCOME YOU... to DISCOVER THE WORLD OF MENTORING!
Formerly known as YouthFriends since 1999, the name has been changed to Basehor-Linwood Mentors in 2013, and our mission is the same. We want to make a difference for all USD 458 students.
Basehor Linwood USD 458 has a unique district mentoring program in which we ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD to work with an adult Mentor, or a Basehor Linwood High School junior or senior "Care Cat". This same program embraces YOU as a Mentor tutoring with children in USD 458 classrooms from preschool to grade 12 throughout any of the USD 458 schools.
We embrace your volunteer service within our schools, and it is with this in mind that we created the safest possible environment for our students. That's why if you would like to volunteer in the classroom, regardless of placement or assignment, you need to complete an application for screening. Volunteers who are in the building solely for classroom parties and one-time opportunities do not need to sign up for Basehor-Linwood Mentors.
Each adult Mentor is carefully screened, complete with background check before training/orientation, placement, and district identification badges assigned. Rescreening occurs every five years of service. Each high school volunteer is a trained member of our "Care Cats". This is an actual class (worth .5 credit per semester) devoted to mentoring as a community service. Volunteer hours can go toward earning National Points of Light certification with the President's Volunteer award, career/community recommendations, commencement honors, and college service requirements. Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to serve 4 semesters or 4 blocks over a 2 year service. PLACEMENT occurs only AFTER confirmation with teacher and/or principal. Tutors/mentors are not available over the summer months, but available when school resumes. Returning Mentors and CareCats are placed first upon school resuming in the fall and spring semesters.
For application, or information, please contact Tammy Potts, district coordinator, 913-724-1727 ext. 111 or email tpotts AT usd458 DOT org
