Interested in Partnership 4 Kids (P4K) at McMillan? What can you expect?
The mission of P4K is to mentor students for college today and careers tomorrow. Our four core values are Goal Setting, Mentoring,
College Access, and Career Exploration. P4K students
participate in after school meetings and activities like college tours,
career exploration, family engagement events, and more. We promote
academic growth and life skill experiences through
curriculum-based programming and one on one support from P4K Program
Coordinators and volunteer mentors. As students prepare for high school
graduation, we work alongside them and their families to establish
future plans and guide students through the college
scholarship and application process.
6th - 8th Grade P4K
accepted into our Middle School Group Mentoring program meet 2-3 times
per month after school with their groups. Meeting activities
change each session depending on the topic. At meetings students learn
about their strengths, build leadership skills, set academic goals for
the year, explore careers they are interested in, and focus on things
they need to know to succeed in high school and
all the way to college or a career that they love. Activities between
mentors and students take place in a school-based setting but there are
plenty of field trips each semester and celebrations to begin and end
the school year!
9th - 10th Grade P4K
After middle school, P4K continues Group Mentoring with students in 9th
and 10th grade at North, South, Central, Benson and Northwest
high schools. In high school P4K students create a road map for success
that includes topics such as academic and school interests, resumes,
dressing for success,
the job application process, ACT preparation and college visits.
