DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- As the new school year begins around the Wiregrass, principals and staff are looking to recruit mentors for students.
These mentors will help out inside and outside of the classroom.
They will tutor students and teach topics such as setting goals, conflict resolution, and making good decisions.
Some mentors are looking to continue their roles even after the students graduate. They are looking to show students that things like entrepreneurship or trades are career options after graduation.
For mentors and principles of schools alike, it's all about nurturing students' growth and development.
