Become a Mentor with Making Connections!

Making Connections is a college readiness program for local high school girls that primarily targets first generation students and students from low-income or disadvantaged backgrounds. We work with students from freshman to senior year by providing tutoring, mentoring, career exploration workshops, and assistance through the college application process. The program has a strong focus on STEM careers, and we encourage students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math. Women of color are dramatically underrepresented in STEM fields, and we hope to combat this by providing supportive and informational programming and guidance in STEM career exploration.

Our mentoring program matches our high school students with people who have been through high school and the college admissions process to provide support and guidance. We seek mentors who will…

  • dedicate 4-6 hours a month toward building a relationship with their mentee
  •  offer support, advice, and guidance to their mentee while they explore higher education, apply for college, and gain knowledge about the STEM fields,
  •  support and motivate their mentee towards success in achieving their aspirations.
  • attend a mandatory mentor orientation and training
  •  attend mentor-mentee socials with your mentee as well as other Making Connections workshops and activities
  • provide monthly updates to program staff
