Independence is excited to announce the TeamMates mentoring program will come to Independence on September 12th, 2022!  TeamMates is a 1-1 in-school mentoring program for students where a mentor meets with a mentee one time a week and meets with the mentee up to high school graduation. Our district will begin this program in 3rd-8th grades in 2022-23, with a high school grade level added per year beginning in the 2023-24 school year.
