Social Mentor: Create lasting memories, lend a supportive ear, and celebrate achievements (or maybe just a regular Friday)! A social mentor is a volunteer who offers our high school seniors one-on-one support, providing opportunities for fun and enrichment by being a supportive friend and role model. Mentors and students are matched in the fall of the student’s senior year of high school, and stay in touch throughout the student’s’ college career, typically with a once a month phone call or get together. To ensure consistency as the students navigate the difficult transition from high school to college, we ask for a commitment of two years from the mentors.
Career Mentor: Many of our students have limited exposure to the variety of career opportunities available to them. Career mentors are professional resources for our students. When a student has career aspirations or interests that align with someone from our career mentor list, we match the student with that mentor for informational interviews or job shadowing opportunities. There is no minimum commitment requested for career mentors - volunteers can accept or decline a meeting with a student based on their schedule.
New Grad Mentor: Help guide a college student through the unfamiliar waters of the post-college working world. The transition from college to the workforce can be daunting. New Grad mentors provide one-on-one professional mentoring and networking assistance to a graduating college senior in their industry for the months prior to and after college graduation.
