As folks who care about creating meaningful opportunities for local students, I am hopeful that you will consider volunteering as a mentor for a Marina High School student.
If you are not able to participate, please forward this invitation along to another respected member of our community who might be interested.
As a mentor, you will meet with an 11th grade student for one hour on three different days over the course of a semester. Your role will be to listen, answer questions or help find the answers, and share all of those things that you wish you had known when you were sophomores in high school. Mentors support the scholars as they set and work towards the goals they want to reach. A mentor is a responsible adult, a trusted guide, a good listener, a reliable role model, a professional advisor, an active sponsor, a teacher of life, and an advocate for scholars. Everybody who has been successful in life can point to at least one mentor who helped guide them through some stage of their life.
Mentors are expected to attend a 1-hour training, to meet with designated scholars for three 45-minute sessions, and to attend a 30 minute debrief. Mentors will be provided with suggested discussion questions and talking points. Coffee and light pastries will be provided by scholars during all meetings. The mentor training and first mentor meeting are scheduled on the same day. The third mentor meeting and debrief are scheduled on the same day, the mentor commits to three meeting day sessions at Marina High School over the Fall Semester.
