Post Secondary Mentorship

As a mentor you will assist students as they navigate post secondary opportunities with regular check-ins, and one-on-one meetings. First-gen students need help with many of the tasks necessary for successful on-time college enrollment (completing college and financial aid applications, understanding tuition bills, navigating college portals, securing transportation, scheduling classes) and tasks to remain in college (renewing financial aid, overcoming food insecurity, securing tutoring services, finding employment, overcoming homesickness).
