Be A Mentor for A Low-Income High School Student in LA

Looking to really invest in the future success of a young person, then consider becoming a mentor. Mentors are the foundation of the organization and have the most direct impact on a student’s future success. Our program is structured so your focus as a mentor is to build trust and connection with your student while being guided by team leads and program heads through various activities and assignments. You are paired with a co-mentor and along with your student, you become a triad. You lean into your own journey and lived experiences to provide insight, different perspective and opportunities to your student while also learning and growing from their lived experience and unique perspectives. You create a brave space for student growth, encourage them to dream Big and help them build life skills to set them up for success no matter their path. Mentors, with creativity and courage help students turn barriers into opportunities and celebrate each win, big or small, along the way.

Time commitment: 2 hour commitment on Saturdays from 12:30 to 2:30pm and an additional half hour/hour check-in meeting with student during week. We ask mentors to stay with their students for their full Minds Matter journey whenever possible. If paired with a Sophomore student, this would be a 3-year commitment.
