VOICE (VOLUNTEERS OF ISSAQUAH CHANGING EDUCATION)
is an in-school mentoring program that pairs caring adult or high school volunteers with Issaquah School District students for one-on-one, supportive relationships. We provide mentors for students K-12 at all 26 Issaquah schools.
Mentoring creates critical connections between young people and caring adults who can help them feel seen, heard and valued. Mentors help youth develop skills such as resilience, self-confidence and self-advocacy which empower them to dream big and achieve their potential.
As one young person said, "My mentor makes me think that what I say matters, what I think matters, what I feel matters and what I do matters."
