What is mentor2.0?
mentor2.0 is a proven, technology-enriched mentoring program for high school students. It provides support and guidance, helping high school students graduate and succeed in both college and the workforce.

By becoming a mentor, you will:
• Help improve the graduation rates of low income, first generation college students.
• Help catalyze a student's future success.
• Help increase college enrollment of these groups.
• Improve persistence in staying in, and completing, college.

How does it work?
• Mentors will be matched with a high school student, typically a freshmen, and work with them through a curriculum that builds skills for college and career success.
• Matches interact through a combination of weekly online communication and monthly in-person mentoring events.
• Professional guidance is provided by Big Brothers Big Sisters staff.

What are the volunteer requirements?
• mentor2.0 volunteers must be at least 21 years old, have a minimum of a two-year college degree, and commit to being a mentor for at least two years.
• Dedicate approximately 30 minutes each week interacting with your mentee through the online curriculum.
• Attend monthly in-person events on re-occurring Tuesday evenings throughout the school year. Events take place at Veritas High School from 5:30-8:00pm. Dinner will be provided!
• Professionals with real life work experience are encouraged to apply.

What does the curriculum focus on?
• Relationship Building: Fosters a strong mentor/mentee relationship through sharing professional experiences, networking skills, short/long-term goal planning, and leadership development.
• Non-Cognitive Skills: Develops study skills, social skills, and learning strategies to enhance students’ educational achievement.
• College Knowledge: Strengthens college aspirations, and builds an understanding of college eligibility, the application process, and support systems.
