Lee Middle School Ribbon Cutting
Affinity launches new mentoring programs at two new sites in Godfrey-Lee Public Schools, Godfrey Elementary and Lee Middle School (LMS). In December 2021, we celebrated the opening of LMS with our school partners, mentors, board members, and local chamber representatives (Grand Rapids Chamber and Hispanic Chamber of Commerce). Angela Reyna, former Program Assistant, is now the Lee Middle School Site Coordinator. Keyla Araujo leads both the Early Childhood Center and Elementary mentoring sites.
We are grateful for the support of individual donors, local businesses, and foundations. In 2021, Affinity launched the Middle School Mentoring Steering Committee. The committee gathers input and feedback from middle school students, teachers, parents, and school partners. This information is integral to building the newest middle school mentoring program. One key element is the ability for mentees to CHOOSE their OWN mentor!
