Thank you for your interest in joining the SHIELD Mentor Program! Currently, we are seeking a select group of new participants to join our program for the SHIELD Saturday Leadership Academy. Youth participants in grades 4-12 in Greensboro and the surrounding area with a commitment to strengthening their leadership skills can register to participate.  Please learn about our program, including the required time commitment and registration fee, before applying.   

 

It is very important that you read all of this information because we want to make sure your youth participant has an opportunity to participate in our SHIELD Saturday Leadership Academy and not be left out.  

FAQs 

How do I sign my child up? 

Applications will be available online.  This means signing up ahead of time to save a spot for your child. This is important because we will only offer limited spots for all youth grades 4-12.


What if registration is full? 

The registration system we have in place keeps count of the number of available spots and automatically begins the process for waitlisting.  Applications received once the slots are full will be placed on a waitlist in the order received.  If a spot becomes available, you will be contacted automatically with further instructions on how to reserve your youth participant’s spot.  This is why it is important to apply as soon as possible to have your best chance of securing a spot for your youth participant. 


What is the selection and notification process? 

The following diverse group of up to 45 youth participants chosen from grades 4-12 will be selected for each grade level: 

  • Grades 4-6 – junior participants help bring energy to the discussion. 

  • Grades 7-9  – our programs have been historically geared toward this target population of youth.  In order to continue to provide a high level of focus on the achievements of our middle school and freshman youth participants, we are able to bridge the gap for high dropout rates and low academic performance.  

  • Grades 10-12  – sophomores, juniors, and seniors will join on a leadership capacity and will form a leadership committee for the overall program and will assist in planning the end of year ceremony. Volunteer hours will be included for participation.


Upon receipt of application materials, an acknowledgment email will be sent to the applicant.  After your application has been processed, you will be asked to review, complete and return important forms (i.e. medical release forms, rules and regulations forms, and enrollment agreement) and required payments to the SHIELD Mentor Program by specified dates. Upon completion of formal admission to the program, you will be mailed a confirmation letter and a welcome packet, which includes detailed information about the SHIELD Saturday Leadership Academy to which you have been admitted.  


The deadline to secure your child’s acceptance into the program will be on February 2, 2019.   


How much does it cost? 

The Participation Fee is $175 (non-refundable) and covers the cost of snacks, t-shirt, leadership materials and the closing ceremony for each participant. Other items and supplies are made possible with the support of our community donors, partners, and sponsors. Upon completion, participants will receive a completion award and SHIELD portfolio notebook.
