Bucs Build Character Through Mentor Program

In an effort to build a relationship with feeder schools, senior basketball players traveled to elementary schools to mentor kids last week.

“They go to mentor students and work with them on reading, classroom assignments, and behavior,” Coach Olivier said. 

One of the senior players, Jack Vreeland, attended the recent trip to the school and worked with the elementary students. 

“I enjoy how happy they are to see me and how I can help them with their education,” Vreeland said.

While the players do multiple activities with the students, working with the students in subjects they’re struggling with can be rewarding.

“My favorite thing to do with the kids is to help them learn and watch how happy they get when they understand something,” Vreeland said.

The players visit with the students every Wednesday throughout the year.
