Mentor

Berkeley Community Scholars (BCS) is currently seeking college-educated professionals who would like to mentor and be part of a community-based network of personal support, information, and resources for our 2021 cohort of students and their families. Mentors will support a student through their college journey.


Our mentoring program provides a sustained, community-based network of personal support, information, and resources to BCS High Hopes Scholars and their families, to help each student complete college successfully and increase their future opportunities.


By matching students with a mentor who has a college degree and understands the challenges and rewards of college, we provide a missing piece on their path to success.


Requirements of a Mentor

We ask our mentors to commit to at least 2 years as a mentor. Additional years of support will be encouraged based on mentor/mentee desire and impact.

  • Be a college graduate or equivalent professional in their field of work
  • Have a minimum of 2 face-to-face meetings
  • Connect with your Scholar at least once a month during the school year (via email, phone call, Skype, etc)
  • Attend Match Meeting with Scholar and College Success Advisor
