KENS 5 staff members are partnering with students at John Jay High School in San Antonio for a special mentorship program.

There about about 20 KENS 5 volunteers working with a group of freshmen at John Jay for the next four years.

The program is coordinated through Communities in Schools.

The volunteers talk individually with students about what’s going on in their lives and counsel them about their goals and dreams, encouraging them to take steps to make their goals a reality.

The goal is simple: We want to help make sure these kids graduate and go on to find success wherever life takes them.
