End of School Year Information

I (Kori) want to thank all of you for joining AIM to serve kids in our community! We appreciate the passion, dedication, and compassion you have shown to your mentees! All in Mentoring would not exist without mentors like you and we thank you for all you have done!!

Most of our matches are school-based matches (only meet in school). If you are a hybrid or community-based match, some of the information below may not apply to your match. If you are unsure or have questions about anything, please reach out to Dani.

If you are a school-based match, there are a few things to note as the school year comes to an end:

Finals Visits of the Year

The last day of school is Wednesday, May 29 and there is no school on Monday, May 27. We would highly recommend having your final meeting for the school year the week of May 20.

Summer Contact

Our board of directors has decided that school-based matches are not to exchange contact information and, therefore, to have no direct contact throughout the summer months. However, you have the option to email, mail, or text AIM with letters, updates, or pictures and we will pass those on to your mentee's parent/guardian. I am sure the kids would enjoy knowing what you are doing over the summer and that you are still thinking about them.

We will have at least one opportunity for you to see your mentee this summer. A park night will be planned for August to kick off the new school year. More details on that to come!

Match Relationship Survey

At the end of every school year, we would like for ALL mentors to complete a match relationship survey. Every mentee will complete a similar survey before the end of the school year as well. These surveys help AIM to know the impact the relationship is having on your mentee as well as to see if there are any areas that mentors feel more training or support would be helpful. These surveys will be emailed out soon to matches who have been together longer than 3 months, so be on the lookout.


The week of May 20th, we plan to deliver treats from The Mixing Bowl to every school before your scheduled meeting day/time for you to share with your mentee during your last visit. Please ask the secretary for your treats if they don't remember to give them to you when you arrive. If you are meeting at a day/time other than the one that was originally set up, please let your AIM contact (Kori or Dani) know when you are meeting so we can make sure to deliver your goodies to the school on time.

Summer Bucket List

Create summer bucket lists together! Help your mentee think about their goals and plans for the summer. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Community-Base Activities

Please remember these are activity ideas for matches in the community-based or hybrid programs only. School-based matches are only allowed to meet at the mentee's school or an AIM event.
