Description

As a mentor to a Year Up student, you’ll have a unique opportunity to help young adults navigate new experiences and shape their careers. It’s your chance to inspire—and be inspired by—motivated, up and-coming talent in the workforce. You’ll also have opportunities to network with like-minded professionals.

What’s Involved:

  • Email or call your mentee once a week
  • Meet face-to-face with your mentee once a month for an 8-month period
  • Assist in building and accessing professional networks and in reviewing resumes and college forms
  • Encourage continuous learning and problem solving
  • Attend the Year Up graduation and recognize your student

What mentors bring:

  • The ability and desire to work with young adults (ages 18-24) from diverse urban backgrounds
  • A positive attitude and good listening skills
  • The willingness to share your knowledge and experiences
  • Patience, understanding, and a sense of humor
