Seeking Mentors for Youth Center Students!


Join this year’s College Access Program (CAP) cohort of mentors!

Being a mentor is a 1.5 to 2-year commitment where you would support youth through their college process.

During the mentee’s junior year, you would meet once a month, build a strong relationship with your mentee, and help them reflect upon their own lives to better understand who they are and what they want. When senior year arrives, the meetings become once a week and you would directly support your mentee on the following: a college list, a college essay, filling out a financial aid form, acceptance letter/rejection letters, and other pieces of the college process.

I was a college mentor in CAP for the past two years, and it was a very rewarding experience! Our Youth Center staff provided me with training and resources to make sure I was a helpful and engaged mentor. My mentee, a recent immigrant from China, is enrolled at Northeastern this fall with an excellent financial aid package! If you have been through the college application process, then you have a lot of knowledge to share with our young people, who are seeking insight from members across this community. I hope you’ll consider serving as a volunteer college mentor, or share this opportunity with your friends!
