Nothing is more rewarding than making a difference in the life of a young person. A mentor is a caring adult who freely gives their own time to a young person. A mentor can have a profound effect on the amount of success that young person might have. To a young person, a mentor guarantees that there is someone who cares and that they are not alone in dealing with the everyday challenges they face.
College Promise mentors meet with their student for 25-30 minutes a week at the student’s high school. Mentors serve as a role model, provide a sounding board, an opportunity to talk and be heard, support, encouragement, guidance, and friendship.
