Mentor a High School Student
High school youth are matched with college-educated mentors to promote high school graduation, college readiness, college enrollment, and college success. Many high school students represent the first generation of their family to enroll in college.
mentor2.0 is a proven, technology-enriched mentoring program for high school students and combines in-person mentoring with safe, secure online communication and a comprehensive weekly curriculum focused on college readiness. Mentors are matched with students at the beginning of their freshmen year of high school. Relationships continue throughout high school and through the first year of college.
It provides support and guidance, helping high school students graduate and succeed in both college and the workforce. Mentors and mentees interact through a weekly online curriculum and once a month in-person event at our partnering school. This program combines traditional mentoring and technology to uniquely impact local youth!
Mentors and mentees are matched based on similar interests, personalities, college/career aspirations, and experiences. 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. Professionals with real life work experience are encouraged to apply.
