  • Who is eligible to sign up for this program?
    The application must be filled out by the high school student. When students sign up on their own, they are showing us that they are interested and committed. If a parent signs you up, we will unfortunately not be able to consider the application.
  • How does the application process work?
    1. First, students need to apply by the deadline via the tab Mentee Enrollment. 2. Next, admitted students will be invited to a mandatory orientation. 3. Once students have attended the orientation, they will receive a final form to submit for program policies and compliance. 4. Finally, students are assigned a mentor to work with for the duration of the semester.
  • Do I have to pay anything to be a part of the program?
    We are committed to ensuring that our mentees are able to enroll in this program without any associated cost, so no, you do not have to pay. We do appreciate any contributions parents or other organizations would like to donate.
