School Mentoring

COCA and Raa Middle School have developed a Mentoring in the Arts Program for students in Raa’s Arts Magnet Program.

The program is now made possible through Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Big Bend. These students know they want a life filled with arts experiences and you can show them how. 

Local visual artists, musicians, dancers, and theater professionals are sought to provide mentoring to middle school arts magnet students. The commitment is very low, just one hour per week, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Big Bend takes care of all the rest, at no cost to you. Support these students by helping them develop communication and social skills, positive relationships with adults, as well as a life-long love of the arts.
