TeamMates is a school-based mentoring program designed to positively impact students by inspiring them through mentorship to reach their full potential.  Mentors receive considerable training and support throughout the mentor-student relationship.  Students can be recommended for this program or nominate themselves for participation.  Our number one priority in Independence Public Schools is the social, emotional, character, and academic development of Independence students.  The mission of TeamMates Mentoring Program aligns with our district mission to prepare all students to succeed and compete in a diverse society and supports a core belief that complete learning is a collaborative effort of home, school, and community.
