Forsyth County News
The Forsyth County school system’s mentoring program will hold a training session Tuesday at the board of education building.

Mentors work with elementary and middle school students. Those wanting to volunteer need to pass a background check, attend training and be able to donate 30 minutes a week during school hours.

The popular program provides students with positive role models, said Susie LeMieux Brookshire, who oversees the program.

“We have a waiting list at almost every school of children that could use mentors because it’s become a very popular program,” Brookshire said.
“Teachers and parents see it as a nice support system.”

The session is set for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at 1120 Dahlonega Highway. Contact (770) 887-2461 or
