We've filled all the open mentor positions for the 2018-19 program year. The application remains open year-round. Feel free to apply to be on our wait list or for next year.


Each student is paired with two mentors with whom they meet for two hours every Saturday during the school year to work on essays, summer program selection, and college lists. Our mentors provide individual support and guidance, allowing each student to fulfill his or her potential and make the leap to college.
