Youth Mentoring Program

About Our Program

Our mentoring program provides a safe space for youth to explore their interests in education and future careers. The mentoring program hosts monthly workshops where youth and mentors connect in person to discuss life and academic challenges and learn new topics presented by the program. In addition, mentors and mentees have weekly virtual spaces to meet and dig deep into issues of interest for each student. Monthly workshops are in-person and after-school and dinner is provided.

Our mentoring program offers a bi-directional learning opportunity where a mentee is paired with a mentor, while mentors learn about socio-ecological barriers that affect our youth.

The program is currently accepting applications for the 2024 summer scholars programs. Click here for more information Summer scholars program

Why this program?

YOU, our mentee, will connect with passionate mentors who will offer guidance and support for your academic and life goals. Our mentors will support you in exploring college options and the application process, financial aid, course selection, homework help, employment opportunities, and other topics as deemed necessary.
Sign up and our team will interview you before matching you with a mentor. We want this program to be a resource for you!
