E.P. Rock Elementary
Stand-By-Me Mentors

EP Rock’s Stand-By-Me Mentoring Partnership is a school-based volunteer mentorship program. Community members volunteer their time as mentors to provide academic, social, and emotional support for students. This privately funded program was established in 1998 by a group of teachers.

Goals of the Stand-By-Me Mentoring Partnership include:

  • To ensure that students in grades K-5 who could benefit from a mentor have one.
  • To increase the self-esteem of each participating student.
  • To help each participating student develop to his or her fullest potential.
  • To help each student develop a positive, personal vision for the future.
