One On One Mentoring

One On One Mentoring

Through positive role modeling, we see multiple successes in our one on one mentoring program, from higher promotion and graduation rates; to improved academics and improved behavior. Mentors are Graduate and Medical students at local universities, professionals, and community members who complete a background check before getting matched.

Mentors commit up to 1 hour a month to the program through virtual communication and in-person meetings. Students and mentors are matched based on a personality assessment, personal and professional interests, and the student’s educational goals.

Once a mentor and mentee are matched and complete their initial meeting, their relationship begins to flourish; they plan future activities and meet independently.

Mentors are required to submit monthly reports to program staff, providing details on the activities, interactions, and discussions that have taken place for the month. Staff also conducts monthly phone conversations with mentors to monitor the relationship and assess whether the student would benefit from any additional resources/services.
