Federal Way kids need adult mentors

The Advancing Leadership class of 2011 is helping recruit new mentors for Communities in Schools of Federal Way. The program serves students in grades 5-12 at 15 schools in Federal Way.

Community members are paired with a student who will benefit from a relationship with a caring adult. Mentors are not expected to be tutors. Mentoring is designed to be fun, easy and rewarding. You can play games, walk around campus, make arts and crafts, etc.

Informational sessions will be held at noon May 18 at Federal Way Community Center; and 7 p.m. May 26 at Umpqua Bank on 320th Street. Contact Doug Baxter: or (253) 528-0847.
