Mentor an Immigrant Youth Virtually!

Enroot is seeking volunteers to have the flexibility to meet with an immigrant youth virtually for the 2020-2021 academic year. 

As a mentor, you are a role model, adviser, friend, and guide helping your mentee to dream big, set goals, and pursue them. All mentees in the Enroot Program are immigrant high school students in Somerville and Cambridge.

Every week, our mentoring pairs connect for structured activities designed by Enroot, work on college applications, or to catch up– it all depends on you and your mentee’s interests and needs. You will likely guide your mentee in the following areas: building positive relationships, exploring careers, planning higher education, and practicing English. Enroot provides mentoring training and support, in addition to Cultural Consciousness trainings to help you in your journey as an Enroot volunteer. 

We are specifically looking for mentors who live in the US, are currently or recently graduated college, and speak one (or more!) of the following languages: Spanish, Haitian Creole, Bengali, Amharic, Portuguese, or Hindi. Speaking another language is not a requirement and we encourage anyone interested to apply!
