Lee’s Summit R-7 School District is pleased to launch our new hOur Power mentoring program. We have the collective power to impact the lives of our students and we are excited to open another avenue for bringing the community into our schools. The launch of this partnership will allow mentors to spend up to an hour a week supporting our students. The hOur Power program has been designed to engage, inspire and connect caring and talented individuals in our community through a variety of mentoring and volunteer opportunities that positively influence the academic success of Lee’s Summit R-7 students.

How can you ensure the hOur Power mentoring program is a success and positively impacts students?

Consider sharing an hour of your time once a week with a student or consider spreading the word in your school community, neighborhood, civic organization, church, or with your friends about this program or other volunteer opportunities within the school district. Parents, you may also contact your school to submit your child’s name or the name of a child close to you that you believe would benefit from this program.
