“What’s special to me about being a mentor was being able to help cultivate a space and culture where young, passionate voices from around the country come together and commit to making their communities a better place.” - Brandon C, Academy Mentor
BECOME A MENTOR
If you answered yes, we encourage you to apply to become a mentor for one of our Brave New Academies!
A SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY
Mentors play an important role in our Academies as small group facilitators who guide the growth and learning of a group of 15-20 diverse high school students. During a time when students are feeling more uncertain and isolated, Brave New Academy mentors empower them to connect with the world, lead with empathy and prepare for their future.
ABOUT THE ROLE
Each of the 10 academy sessions ends with a 40-minute small mentor group called a “BNA Squad” where students break into small groups to discuss and engage with topics from that day's session. After observing the full session, including inspiring guest speaker interviews, mentors facilitate and guide the BNA Squad break out discussions and activities for the students. Mentors will engage with the same BNA Squad throughout the entire Academy and get to know the students and watch them grow over the 10 sessions.
TIMING & COMMITMENT
We are offering one Academy this fall that you can sign up to be a mentor for. You must be able to commit to all 10 sessions of any ONE academy plus a 90-minute training one week before the first session.
