Mentoring programs recognized by Gov. Cuomo

Mentoring Certificate from Gov. CuomoA certificate of recognition from the governor’s office has been awarded to the Cohoes City School District for its mentoring efforts.

The certificate, signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo, cites “conscientiousness, leadership, and sense of responsibility in developing quality mentoring services that pair youth with caring adults who offer sound guidance and direction.”

The district’s mentoring initiatives include Helping Others Prosper Everyday (HOPE) and a mentoring program affiliated with Future-Ready Pathways.

HOPE pairs mentees with mentors who provide life guidance to middle and high school students who have had challenging life experiences that impact their learning in school.

The Future-Ready Pathways career mentors make four-year commitments to working with students in the program for a few hours each month. They provide guidance and encouragement to students as they navigate the program, which enables them to accrue up 60 college credits while earning their high school diploma.

“Your leadership and passion will no doubt bring about positive change among the students, and will go a long way toward guiding our youth on the right track for a better future,” a letter enclosed with the certificate read.

Preparing our students for success in tomorrow’s world.
