As Elkhorn Public Schools continues to experience significant growth throughout the District, and our student population progressively diversifies, the need for extra student support increases. As a result of this growth, EPS recently made the decision to transition our current, district-run Partners in Education Mentoring Program into a chapter with the TeamMates Mentoring Program.

This school-based mentoring program, founded by Dr. Tom and Nancy Osborne, is an additional tool utilized by EPS to provide more structured support and encouragement for students, given the wide variety of backgrounds and interests that can be found in EPS students,  while bringing more mentors into our program and allowing us to retain the majority of our current mentoring relationships already in place.

TeamMates mentors are asked to meet with their student mentee once per week during regular school hours, within the school building.  If you’re interested in making a difference in the life of an EPS student, please visit and choose “Elkhorn, NE” as your desired chapter.

If you have questions regarding the TeamMates of Elkhorn mentoring chapter, contact Kara Perchal at or (402) 289-2579.
