What numbers will get you to where you're heading?
The Path to College pairs highly motivated low-income students with a one-on–one mentor as part of our exclusive academic fellowship program. With the firm belief that low-income students with high academic aspirations need targeted guidance along the path to college, we recruit committed professionals to encourage our students, hold them accountable, and help them achieve their goals. The mentor and student meet once a week for a period of three years.
We provide college preparation guidance to our mentors, ongoing training, and require a background check. The mentors are able to schedule meetings with their student on their own time, and can arrange to meet the student during lunch at their high school, at a community location after school, on the weekends, or even digitally via video conference.
As an emerging member of the United Way of Palm Beach County Mentor Network, we are currently recruiting mentors for our next class of fellows. Please attend our OPEN HOUSE on 1/29 at 5:30pm at Beach Club Lake Worth to learn more. In the words of one mentor:
“I wish I had more time in my life to mentor! When I work with my mentee, I always feel such a sense of rightness in serving in such a grassroots way. What a gift!”
