Academic Mentor

Welcome to Mentor Me! We are thrilled you are interested in academically supporting our young people during these unprecedented times. We love seeing our students truly have a village looking out for them and their well-being!

In an effort to address learning loss and support the social-emotional development of our young people, we are inviting interested community members to volunteer as Academic Mentors. As an Academic Mentor, you will be paired with a 9th or 10th grader to work on specific subjects while supporting their self-management, relationship-building, and self-awareness skills.

Building upon your subject matter skills, our training will provide tools and strategies to work with young people from a strengths-based framework. While the focus is academic improvement, our approach encompasses elements of positive youth development and trauma informed care.

Interested in becoming an Academic Mentor? Please note that we are currently seeking Academic Mentor volunteers for 9th and 10th grade high school students.

*Provide this link to 3 references (each must have known you for a minimum of 1 year). If you are a current Mentor you do not need to send additional references.
