Cridersville Elementary is excited to partner with M.A.V. Youth Mentoring (M.A.V.  stands for Mercer, Auglaize and Van Wert Counties) beginning in September of next school year. This group was formerly known as Big Brothers, Big Sisters.  This lunch program is a mentoring program where children in the program will be matched with volunteers from the community for LUNCH FRIENDSHIP, and FUN activities. The volunteers will go to school twice a month during your child's lunch period to talk, eat and do fun activities. Some of the activities might include crafts, board or card games or playground fun.  Your child's Mentor or our agency might occasionally provide your child with his/her lunch. 

Mr. Wolke has applications for both VOLUNTEERS and YOUTH APPLICATIONS.  If you would like to fill this out for next year, please contact Mr. Wolke or Ms. Jessica Fisher, MAV Youth Mentoring Site Coordinator at 419-584-2447 or email
