Mentor Program - Bridging the Gap
After students are selected for the Rebel Voices scholarship program, they are paired with a mentor who helps them navigate their educational pursuits, as well as laying a strong foundation for them to build up from. Mentors can be former students, professionals in a similar field, or just individuals who want to give back to their community by making a personal connection with a student.
We ask that mentors and their students communicate weekly through text, email, phone call or in-person meetings. Consistency is key.
We encourage mentors to be supportive, straightforward, thoughtful, understanding and encouraging.
Mentors stay in touch with their students through the entire scholarship, which could range from 13 weeks to two years depending on their program.
