    Mentors have a unique role in a child’s life. Mentors are trusted friends and guides that support the mission of the family, school, and community: to help children achieve their goals, become happy and successful individuals. Mentors are screened, trained, matched carefully and supported in their role by the Director, Nina Mackta, a clinical social worker who is licensed by the State of Rhode Island and has over twenty years of direct experience with youth and families.

Parents, teachers, mentors and principals reported undeniable growth in student self esteem, attendance and performance from mentoring relationships. The director, mentors and teachers work together, which guarantees smooth operation within The Strategic Support Mentoring Program.

    Program Overview
    The Strategic Support Mentoring Program was founded in 1999 by East Greenwich School District social worker,
    Nina MacktaMackta. For twelve years community members, educators and students have been volunteering with our program to promote a positive life experience for securingthe youth of East Greenwich across all grade levels. We invite you to join us and become a grant frommentor.

    Program Philosophy: All families and children have strengths. At various points in our lives we need support to succeed. The most predictive measure of successful children is
    the juvenile justice systemspecial bond with a caring and consistent adult who is available within a child’s support system. The Strategic Support Mentoring Program takes a holistic approach in assessing and planning for each child’s needs, i.e. social, emotional, academic, etc. Teachers, parents and others may refer children to increase the numberprogram.
    The Goal
    of malethe Program is to provide extra support needed by many children that would ensure their academic and personal success over time.
    Parents and Families are the critical link to the Strategic Support Mentoring Program’s success. Parents must provide consent and inform the attended school of their child’s needs. Parents can request
    mentors for their children. Parents are also offered resources if needed and the program is a voluntary operation in the district!East Greenwich School District.

    Growing up, my mom made "Cheese Dreams" for lunch on weekends. Did you know that you can cook bacon in the oven, spread out on baking sheets and covered so it doesn't splatter? Probably a better method than we used somewhere online. Anyways, she would layer toast, bacon, tomato, munster cheese and put under the broiler... tuna melts.
    Roasted potatoes and just about any other vegetable, tossed in olive oil, and playing with herbal seasonings. I have some great books on herbs, their history, use, etc.

    You asked for ideas baking, so here are a few...
    My daughter made a zuchinni (not apple) crisp. I believe she found the recipe at allrecipes.com - it was awesome.
    Growing up, my mom made "Cheese Dreams" for lunch on weekends. Did you know that you can cook bacon in the oven, spread out on baking sheets and covered so it doesn't splatter? Probably a better method than we used somewhere online. Anyways, she would layer toast, bacon, tomato, munster cheese and put under the broiler... tuna melts.
    Roasted potatoes and just about any other vegetable, tossed in olive oil, and playing with herbal seasonings. I have some great books on herbs, their history, use, etc.
    Cooking pumpkin is easy (you,know, cut in half...), but where the measuring lessons can come in is in baking spiced pumpkin seeds. I made up a recipe where I whipped up an egg white and mixed in 1/2 cup sugar,
    1/2 t salt, 1/4 t each ground cloves, ground cinnamon, chili powder, and ground red pepper flakes (optional).
    Spices have tremendous nutritional value and I have books on this as well. My daughter loves playing with herbs and spices when she cooks.You could have the kids work with herbs, spices, panko crumbs, and baked
    chicken or fish.
    Stuffed peppers are really fun. In the summer time, we cook them on the grill, wrapped in foil, so that we don't heat up the kitchen.
    Here's a project idea... Have kids research a fruit or vegetable... write two or three paragraphs about the nutritional value - Jonny Bowden's book is a great resource and I wouldn't hesitate to buy and
    donate a few copies for the class. This might be one use for the funds. (Yogurt, butter, and eggs are well-regarded in his book). Also have the kids research online at allrecipes.com for a way of using their
    selected food in a baking recipe. Challenge them to experiment with three or four selected herbs or spices and salt to create their own recipe... Have a carrot cupcake war, like on TV.
    The ideas are endless.
