SiMPLE Mentoring Program
Former Selvidge students are invited to be a part of the SiMPLE (Stallion Mentoring Program and Leadership Experience) program. Mentors from grades 9, 10, and 11 return to Selvidge to lead and mentor students in the 7th and 8th grades. The mission statement is simple: "To be a catalyst in encouraging and assisting the Rockwood School District in offering children the opportunity to reach their maximum potential through mentoring." The program takes place on the school grounds and is based around academics and activities. Students meet once a quarter. It can't be underestimated -- it brings a wonderful sense of personal gratification and enjoyment to the volunteers. The SiMPLE program was developed to offer the students the opportunity to reach their maximum potential. By providing trusting relationships between young people and their older peers, the program is aimed at developing the youth's confidence, competence and, most importantly, their character.
