Are You Ready for Some… Mentoring?

Was it me or did the gloom not seem as gloomy this morning?  No longer do I have to stare at the girls from my middle school yearbook to see helmets and shoulder pads.  College football is back.  It wasn’t pretty, but it is back!

This is normally the time of year fathers gather their family together and explain to them that Daddy’s going away for three months and Junior is the man of the house now.  Conversely, I am asking our PAX to step up for Oakview Elementary School.  Thanks to @Sammy, we have been given an opportunity to mentor students through a reading program at Pitchfork’s host school.  The commitment is 30 minutes a week.  I encourage you to extend your fatherly duties a half hour every week to enrich a kid’s life and grant them a different perspective as they grow into their formative years.

There will be a one time training session October 2nd at 9:00 that will last one hour.  I don’t know numbers, but I’d be inclined to guess the male population among the tutors will be low.  Please email me ( ) if you are interested.  I’d like to have any idea of how many volunteers we will have.  Also, please leave any questions in the comments section so everyone can see.

The mission of F3 Foundation is to leverage the men of F3 Nation to develop and strengthen male leadership in our communities.

Thanks for strengthening the male leadership in our community.

    @FloppyDisc, Great question. I followed up for verification and Becky Riddle, the instructional coach in charge of this program. The answer is yes. Times are during school hours and will be worked out based on student and potential tutor’s schedule. Here is her full reply:

    “Times vary from teacher to teacher. It depends on schedules for lunch related arts and teaching times. Some teachers prefer first thing in the morning(8:00) others, later in the day. We have tutors here all day long. Teachers give me times and days they prefer. Tutors do the same. I work out times that work for both. Times cannot go over 30 minutes since students cannot miss instruction…but some tutors come and stay an hour to work with 2 students back to back.”
