We recognize that adults of varying backgrounds and experiences have the power to make a difference in the lives of our youth. If you are interested in committing to a one-year mentorship that could change a student’s future, please do not hesitate to apply.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, however we encourage candidates to apply between May and August so that each mentorship starts near the beginning of the school year.
