FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Scott County Partnership Seeking 8 Adult Mentors for High School Conquer

SCOTTSBURG, Ind.—The Scott County Partnership is recruiting volunteers to be Adult Allies at Austin High School for students in grades 11 and 12. Conquer the CHAOS is an invaluable program that helps students to identify goals, the necessary steps to achieve them and support from the Allies along the way. Allies will help the students to build stability for themselves so that they are more likely to have a successful future. 

The students decide their own goals and plan what they want out of the program, high school, and their future. The adult Allies are there for support. “One of the most effective prevention strategies a community can institute is having adult role models collaborating with its youth,” asserts Lori Croasdell, Coordinator for CEASe of Scott County.

As an Ally, you will advocate, support and collaborate with your student by helping them set goals, stay on track with graduation, find resources for college applications, and much more. By offering encouragement, advice, and moral support, the Allies will not only help the student reach goals, but also overcome obstacles throughout the school year. 

Cindy Watts, Austin High School guidance counselor, applauds the program saying, “The students who participated in Conquer the CHAOS last year loved that extra attention and guidance they received to help them move forward and reach their goals. The students looked forward to their weekly meetings with Kim and LeAnn. The more we can connect them with the community and resources now, the more involved and successful they can be when they leave us.  I am very thankful we were able to partner with The Scott County Partnership to offer this wonderful program to our students.” 

The Austin High School Conquer group meets every Friday from 10:45 to 11:30 a.m. Interested volunteers should contact LeAnn Walker at at 812-752-0980 or email leann.walker@scottcountypartnership.org as soon as possible. This program starts right away.
