The Block Island Times

An Act of Kindness

Apr 30, 2013

The Block Island School and the Senior Advisory Group are joining forces to create a mentoring program for local young people called Block Island C.A.R.E.S. (Connecting All Resources for Educational Support).

“We’re looking for adult members of the community to work with school children as a mentor,” said Senior Advisory Coordinator Kathleen Mitchell. “If you’re someone that can donate your time and talent for as little as one hour a week, even for just one month, we’d love to have you participate. We plan on offering different areas for mentoring — anything from gardening to reading. Come join us. You could make a difference in a young person’s life!”

Contact Kathleen Mitchell at or at 466-5419, ext. 2 to help the young people on the island.
