On the day of the event, they sign-in all their volunteers, help transport them to the site (driver certification a plus, but not required), introduce them to the organization, and serve alongside them.

The RISE Mentoring Program is now accepting applications from Linfield students to serve as mentors for the 2012-2013 school year. Mentees are hand picked by the counselors at McMinnville middle schools and meet with mentors for one hour each week. Each student has a different reason for needing a mentor, but the support and affection from a positive role model makes a huge difference in their lives.
Applications are available in Riley 216 or are available for download.
