Opportunity Details

eMentoring through CricketTogether

United Way of Midland County and CricketTogether are partnering with local elementary schools to provide a virtual mentoring opportunity for the 2021–22 Academic Year.
WHAT IS CRICKETTOGETHER?
CricketTogether is an eMentoring learning experience that helps students become engaged and independent learners, through:

  • Reading and exchanging letters with their personal eMentor using standard-aligned topics and thought-provoking questions.
  • Experiencing the benefits of having a personal encourager and individualized learning support.

WHO ARE THE STUDENTS?
3rd–5th graders from schools that are underserved with more than 50% from economically disadvantaged homes. Each eMentor is paired with their own student for the full academic year.
HOW AM I SUPPORTED AS A VOLUNTEER?
The platform provides you with video training before you begin and then ongoing structure and suggestions for your correspondence with your mentee! The readings your student selects always give you a fresh topic to focus on Benefits:

  • 100% online
  • Limited time commitment (20-30 min a week)
  • NO scheduling or coordination
  • Online training and ongoing support
  • Safe & Secure. All identities are private and materials are reviewed by teacher.

Location: Virtual Opportunity. 100% Online.
When: 2021-2022 Academic School year. Registration will close by the end of November or when all slots are filled, whichever comes first. Volunteers will create an account, register for the session and complete an online onboarding checklist to be matched with a student.
Onboarding will require less than 60 minutes to complete and is self-paced. Once the onboarding checklist is complete, volunteers will be ready to be matched with a student as there are spots to be filled. The commitment will begin within approximately 3 weeks of registering and completing the checklist.
How: Volunteers will express an interested using the UW portal or their corporate designated system. Once the interested is expressed volunteers will be sent information on how to register and onboarding next steps.
