M.E. LaZerte staff have been trained in the world renowned Link Crew Program, which we refer to as the MEntor Program. The sole purpose of the program is help new students feel more comfortable, as well as to assist them to achieve success in their first year of high school. Each Grade 10 student is assigned two MEntor Leaders. These leaders are Grade 11 or 12 students who exemplify the characteristics of a good role model and leader to guide our new students. We currently have 150 strong leaders that have volunteered to take on the MEntor role for the upcoming year! These MEntors will be touching base with their grade 10 student several time throughout the year to play a key role in their success during this transition period.
