KEYS Mentoring (Keep Encouraging Youth toward Success)
The KEYS Mentor Program matches a caring adult with a student on the brink of success once a week for thirty to forty-five minutes during the school day. Our primary focus is on relationship building rather than tutoring, although we've found that increased student academic success often occurs.KEYS is offered at every Katy ISD campus, each of which has a staff liaison who oversees the school's program. All mentors must make a one school year commitment to a student and complete an application and background check.
