How Can I Get Matched with a Mentor?

  • In addition to our after-school sessions, interested Mentees (in-person or virtual) can be paired with a personal Mentor.
  • Following our group mentoring model (1-3 mentees per group), each Mentee will be matched with a Mentor for the school year starting in October and ending in April.
  • Whether it’s helping you set goals for the semester, organizational tips, creating a resume/cover letter, mock interview prep, exploring college and career options, finding and applying for scholarships, or being a listening ear, our Scholar CC Mentors will play the role of a coach, motivator, supporter and friend.

FAQs

Mentees are students looking for additional help with planning for post high school success. 

Attend a Mentee informational meeting, complete the application, have your parent/guardian sign the participation form in a non-formal virtual chat, phone call or in person interview.  Mentees will also be asked to agree to and sign our Mentee Standards and Guidelines.

We look at Mentors who have experience in the area you would like to improve on, work in the career you’re interested in, graduated from a school you would like to attend or share similar hobbies. At that point, we speak with the Mentor whom our team believes is the best fit and make the match.

We understand that some students might already have a mentor or might not have the time to make the commitment. Although we feel that being matched with a Mentor will strengthen your experience, you will still be able to participate in our workshop sessions and tutoring but will not be matched with a Mentor.

There will be times when a mentorship match doesn’t work out for one reason or another. If the relationship cannot be realigned, the mentor and mentee may need to split ways.This does not indicate failure on either person’s part; rather, it simply recognizes that the match is not a fit.

Speaking with the mentoring program manager, mentor, and/or mentee gives the program admin the opportunity to make sure that ending the relationship is right for the situation and helps with closing the relationship in a respectful way. Gathering feedback from the mentor and mentee to understand if there is anything that needs to change about the matching process going forward will also help improve the program overall.

We ask that the mentee commit to at least one school year (approximately 8 months Oct-April). We understand that some weeks will be missed due to illness, schedule conflicts, holidays, and emergencies.

Scholar CC offers ongoing support and resources for our mentees. The Mentor Program Manager will check in regularly to make sure things are going well and address any concerns. At any time, if you have questions, Scholar CC is here to help! We want to make sure you are always feeling safe, confident and encouraged.
