"In order to be a mentor, and an effective one, one must care. You must care. You don’t have to know how many square miles are in Idaho, you don’t need to know what is the chemical makeup of chemistry, or of blood or water. Know what you know and care about the person, care about what you know and care about the person you’re sharing with."
- Maya Angelou

"A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself."
- Oprah

Who are MOSTe Mentors?
MOSTe Mentors are professional, college-educated women and at least 21 years of age. They come from all backgrounds, ethnicities, ages, and religions. Some great friendships happen among our mentors too. It's a great group of women and we are always looking for more!

MOSTe mentoring includes attending our workshops, chaperoning a Saturday bus ride to a MOSTe event, bringing your scholar to cultural events, accompanying her on college fairs and college tours, introducing her to friends and family, listening to her ideas, concerns and more.

We have a great support structure and provide a mandatory training which covers policies, procedures, expectations, guidelines, etc. In addition, we offer ongoing training throughout the year based on mentor needs and to ensure our mentor's voices are heard. We also provide access to a private Facebook group for mentors to communicate and share mentoring stories with one another. Mentors also have constant access to our Program Managers, who are awesome!

Mission Statement

The mission of MOSTe is to mentor and empower girls from underserved areas of Los Angeles County to become the next generation of college-educated women. Our vision is for our scholars to reach college and graduate within 6 years, and develop into confident, career-focused agents of social change.

Description

Motivating Our Students Through Experience (MOSTe) is a mentoring and college access nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that girls from underserved areas in LA County have the support they need to get to and through college. Students enter our programs in the seventh grade, are matched with professional female mentors, and are provided the resources, guidance, and access needed to help accomplish their educational goals. Mentors in our organization serve as role models, thoughtful listeners, and guides to exploring schools, careers, and opportunities. As of 2022, MOSTe has supported hundreds of girls in underserved Los Angeles communities to grow into confident, connected, and college-educated young women with pathways to achieve their long-term career ambitions.
