Mentors are a critical part of how we make that possible. You can help our scholars and alum through three key initiatives:
College Connection Coaches: This role provides mentoring and support to help Scholars navigate the transition to college life academically, socially, and personally. This formal commitment begins at the end of the Scholar’s senior year of high school and continues through their first year of college. The ripple effect of a Coach’s impact extends well beyond college.
Career Mentor: This is an opportunity for mentors to provide one-on-one coaching and guidance to an assigned college scholar or recent graduate, providing support through resume and cover letter writing, and networking, and occasional career conversations and guidance as a Scholar grows into their career.
Internships: Scholars gain direct training through internship programs, both while students are in college and in the summer after graduation. You get a high-performing student. They get real-world work experience.
