What do you look for in a Mentor?
We are looking for a Mentor that can stay and build a relationship with these kids. Most of the people in their life aren’t able to give them support, motivate, or care for them. Some of the things we are looking for are experience, connections, and support in order to help enhance their skill sets and advance them through life.
Why should I become a Mentor?
You should become a Mentor for a pletora of reasons: very rewarding to give back; you have experiences and knowledge that could help set these kids on the right track; and it will be a partnership that you will be able to grow from as well. Propelians are a family; become a part of the family.
What will be my commitment?
You will be expected to set up meeting sessions with your student, during PROPEL program hours, at least twice a month. We encourage more meetings, during PROPEL hours, to help build trust and a soild foundation of a relationship between you and the student, however, only twice a month is the requirment.
You will being aiding and supporting your student through multiple means. Whether its with helping them on their homework/projects, helping them deal with a social or self problems, providing networking connects and resources, or conducting exercises to help them with much needed life skills; you will be building ways to best support your students.
How does this program work?
You will need to go to the top of this page and fill out the Mentor Questionaire. The students will be filling out a similar form in order to help match you up to a student you will be best suited for. After completing the questionaire, we will be contacting you for the next steps into becoming an official PROPEL Mentor and meeting your student.
