students pose in front of a brick building

A handful of ODY students were able to join Ms. Soper earlier this week for a trip to SUNY Oneonta that included CFES Peer Mentor training and a guided tour of the campus.

Ms. Soper oversees the CFES Peer Mentor program at ODY and says now that our mentors have all been trained, they’re ready to jump in and get to work! “We have some mentors already helping out in our elementary classrooms working one-on-one with students,” she said. "They’re already feeling the pride that comes from helping others, and we look forward to getting more students involved with mentoring and other service activities around ODY.”
