Katy ISD campuses will host tables for their mentors along with any community members who might be interested in becoming a mentor.

KEYS is a relationship, not a tutoring, program that matches a caring adult with a student on the brink of success. Mentors make a one-school-year commitment and meet with their students for up to one hour each week, on campus, during the school day, during the school year.  KEYS survey results from the 2015-2016 school year showed that 88% of KEYS students increased grades, 80% decreased absences and 87% decreased discipline referrals.

Over its 20-year-history, thousands of mentors have changed the trajectory of their KEYS student’s lives.  As school starts this year, hundreds of Katy ISD students are waiting for a mentor of their own.  If you have ever thought about becoming a mentor, or if you are already a KEYS mentor, please join us at the KEYS Kick Off.  To RSVP or to complete a KEYS application please go to www.katyisd.org and click on “Partners in Education” under the “Community” tab.
