Henderson County Pathfinders Program
What is the Henderson County Pathfinders Program?
Created to support the development of students in Henderson County Public Schools, the Henderson County Pathfinders Program (HCPP) is an innovative mentorship program that places middle and high schoolers with a mentor who will provide individualized support to students throughout their journey from grades 7 to 12.
What is the timeline of HCPP?
HCPP will begin in August 2024 in Flat Rock Middle and East Henderson High schools and will move to other feeder zones as funds become available.
Why is HCPP needed?
In the Henderson County Public School System, 610 students, or 10% of the student population, are categorized as disconnected youth – meaning they are neither in school nor employed. Many other students currently face academic, behavioral, and attendance challenges that increase their risk of becoming disconnected. There is a pressing need for a one-on-one community mentorship program for these middle and high school students to receive the support they need to remain in school and become gainfully employed. Demands on administrators, counselors, and teachers are ever increasing and each individual school’s capacity to address this issue is finite. HCPP’s goal is to lower or eliminate disconnected youth in our community by providing individualized support through one-on-one mentorship.
