Fountain Hills Mentor Program

The Fountain Hills Mentoring Program formally began in 1996. The mentors, trained volunteers from our own town and surrounding areas, provide our students with personal one-on-one attention in a quiet location on campus such as the library. The mentors will go through a screening process, background check, and training from the Golden Eagle Education Foundation. The mission of the mentor program is to be a catalyst to encourage and assist the Fountain Hills educational system in offering our children the opportunity to reach their maximum potential through mentoring. We have mentors ready and waiting for your student. Please have your student stop by the front office to pick up the permission form today!
