Make a difference in your child's school

Become a Parent Mentor with Casa Quad Cities

This program will place parents in Hillcrest and Ericsson Elementary School classrooms for two hours a day to act as mentors for our most prized possessions...your child...our children.

Parents as mentors work one on one and in small groups with students.
No other previous experience is required, and all parents will be provided the training necessary.

Your citizenship status, educational level and language skills are not a barrier to your involvement in your school.

All are welcome!

Call Yenny Andreu, and join our parent mentor team.
