FULTON, NY – Students and mentors in the Fulton School Mentoring Program recently took part in a field trip to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse.
Mentors, mentees and staff enjoyed lions, tigers, and bears.
They also enjoyed a bird show, performing elephants, and various other creatures they could find on this summer outing.
The trip to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo is part of the programâ€™s summer events and was the second event held this summer; the summer events will be completed with the annual picnic to be held in late August.
The Mentoring Program matches adult mentors with Fulton youth ages 8-15 and is a collaboration between Oswego County Opportunities, the Fulton Community Task Force, Catholic Charities and the Fulton School District.
If you would like to be a mentor or refer a student, call Carol Ireland, mentor manager, at 402-2093.
Just one hour a week makes a difference!
The Fulton School Mentoring Program is fully funded by a DJCS grant and serves students in the Fulton City School District.
