48 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, September 17 - September 23, 1999 Shields school seeks mentors Richard A. Shields Elementary School in Lewes will have another resource available to assist chil- dren in need of additional help. The Creative Men- toring program at Shields is looking for communi-  ty volunteers who are willing to mentor a child in the school setting. A mentor will be asked to commit one hour per week to an individual child. Through creative ac- tivities, the mentor will work to unlock the child&apos;s natural talents and abilities. A mentor is defined by Webster's dictionary as a 'trusted friend and advisor.' The mentoring rela- tionship can be one of the most important relation- ships in the life of a child as he or she develops the confidence and interest necessary for lifelong learning. Volunteers interested in becoming mentors will complete'a Creative Mentoring application and will have a criminal background check. Training will be provided by qualified staff and continued support for the mentor will be available at all times. Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to call Heidi Quill/n, LCSW, at 645-7748. Mentoring class is set for Sept 30 in Dover Creative Mentoring will offer its mentor training course, Ele- ments of Effective Mentoring, free of charge, on Sept. 30 at Boscov's Dover Mall store. Vol- unteers are needed to be in-school mentors to children in Shields El- ementary in Lewes, Rehoboth El- ementary and Lord Baltimore Ele- mentary in Ocean View.
