DISCOVER Basehor-Linwood Mentors and Care Cats!
Basehor Linwood USD 458 has a unique district mentoring program,
and you can participate as an adult "Mentor," or as a BLHS junior or senior "Care Cat."
Each adult volunteer is carefully screened, complete with background check before training/orientation, and placement. Each high school volunteer is a trained member of our "CareCats Mentors". 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, commencement honors, and college service requirements. Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to serve 2 semesters or 2 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.
