Mentors, both male and female, are needed for incoming ninth grade high school students at Capitol, Riverside, South Charleston, and Saint Albans. The Walk the Talk mentoring program will identify and work to overcome students’ individual needs that may be obstacles hindering their success. The overall goal is to work with these students to assist them in dealing with obstacles that may prevent them from reaching graduation. More information:

  • Twenty mentors needed all together.
  • Mentoring a student would only require one hour per week
  • School liason is available to students and mentors at each school.
  • Focus on areas such as increased GPAs, self-esteem, decrease absenteeism, etc.
  • Mentoring training provided.

If you're interested in being a mentor, please contact Ralph Miller at or 304 541-4478.
