Fickett Elementary Kicks Off its Annual UPS Mentoring Program

by talkupaps

Mentorship UPS 023Earlier this school year, Fickett Elementary held its annual United Parcel Service, Inc.  (UPS) mentoring program kick-off to celebrate a continuing partnership between the APS school and its internationally known partner.  This program was originally developed to provide mentors and guidance for girls, but this year the program was extended to also include male students at Fickett Elementary.

For years, UPS has served as a Partner in Education at Fickett Elementary School.

The Fickett program is sponsored by the UPS African-American Business Resource Group Community Connections Mentoring Program. The mission of the program is to enhance the lives of young girls and boys by providing personal encouragement through academic and social involvement from UPS employees. Mentorship UPS 036

“The program is a benefit to our school community,” said Ms. Mary King, school counselor at Fickett Elementary. “It helps build character and gives students more exposure outside of the school environment.”

UPS is committed to motivating student participants to become better students through personal development. The mentors are hopeful that, through interaction with adults and fellow students, the girls and boys will carry the lessons learned into their personal and professional lives as adults.

As a new teacher to Fickett, I really enjoyed witnessing this process and hearing the kids’ excitement with their mentors. Go Trojans!
