Mentor Overview

A mentor is a guide. A friend. A resource who paves the way to success, and derives satisfaction from helping others succeed. Your role as mentor is to inspire, encourage, and support your mentee, and to contribute to their professional and personal development. Your mentee's most immediate goal is to reach college completion, and your goal is to support them along the way. 


What are the requirements for the program?

All of our mentors must have at least a bachelor's degree, and the willingness to give back and make an impact by providing mentoring support to one of our scholarship recipients.  

As a mentor, you will be expected to provide support by:
  • Interacting with your mentee over this online platform two times per month.
  • Meeting with your mentee in person at least three times per year, which can be done at our College Now hosted events in and around downtown Cleveland.
