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 Cambridge and Somerville.
Some pairs meet up each week at Enroot's office for structured activities, while others meet up once a week to work on college applications at a local coffee shop. Favorite actives include: going out for hot chocolate, watching a movie, playing basketball, working on a tough homework assignment, or visiting a college – 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.
We are specifically looking for mentors who 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!
