GHTS Mentoring Program LLY-424-22-008

About The Programs

GHTS is excited to propose a comprehensive range of mentoring services for BCPS, grades K through 12, that are designed to enhance social and emotional learning (SEL). Our services, available in person, hybrid, and virtual formats, are based on the highly successful tutoring services we offer. We have carefully crafted our mentoring programs using the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning’s (CASEL) framework, which is widely recognized for its effectiveness.

CASEL defines social and emotional learning (SEL) as an essential component of education and human development. It encompasses the process through which young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to develop healthy identities, manage emotions, and achieve personal and collective goals. SEL also enables individuals to feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.

By incorporating the CASEL framework into our mentoring services, GHTS ensures that students receive a holistic and well-rounded education. Our programs not only focus on academic success but also prioritize the development of essential social and emotional skills. We firmly believe that these skills are crucial for students to thrive in all areas of their lives, both inside and outside the classroom.

With GHTS mentoring services, students will have the opportunity to enhance their emotional intelligence, improve their self-awareness, and develop effective communication and problem-solving skills. Our dedicated mentors are trained to provide guidance and support, helping students navigate the challenges they may face and empowering them to make responsible choices.

We understand the importance of flexibility in education, which is why we offer our mentoring services in person, hybrid, and virtual formats. This ensures that students can access our programs regardless of their circumstances or learning preferences. Whether it's face-to-face sessions, online interactions, or a combination of both, GHTS is committed to delivering high-quality mentoring services that meet the unique needs of each student.

Social Emotional Learning is a powerful tool that promotes educational equity and excellence by fostering strong partnerships between schools, families, and communities. Through these partnerships, we create learning environments that prioritize trust, collaboration, and meaningful curriculum. By implementing SEL, we can effectively address various forms of inequity and empower both young people and adults to actively contribute to thriving schools and just communities.

To achieve our mission of producing mentally, socially, and academically healthy students, we offer a range of services that cater to their unique needs. Our weekly one-on-one mentoring and other developmentally appropriate programs focus on academic support, communication skills, goal setting, relational capacity, and community service. This comprehensive and holistic approach connects BCPS students, enhances their knowledge, and equips them with essential skills for future goal setting.

Our ultimate goal is to cultivate well-rounded, engaged, and civic-minded lifelong learners. To achieve this, we have set several objectives for our students, including but not limited to:
  • Gaining confidence
  • Identifying personal strengths
  • Developing positive relationships
  • Becoming socially aware
  • Developing conflict resolution skills
  • Resisting negative social pressures
  • Increasing community involvement and civic engagement
  • Academic engagement and improvement

In conclusion, GHTS is proud to propose our comprehensive mentoring services for BCPS, grades K through 12, that prioritize social and emotional learning. By incorporating the CASEL framework, we aim to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for their personal and academic success. With our dedicated mentors and flexible program formats, we are confident that GHTS can make a positive impact on the lives of BCPS students.
