Roseland University Prep and Roseland Collegiate Prep are seeking positive, enthusiastic, and educated adults who would like to make a difference in helping high school students achieve their dreams of successful college careers. To make each of these dreams a reality, we started the Through College Mentoring Program, and we need your help- especially after all the setbacks of the 2020-2021 school year!

Most of the students at RUP/RCP will be first generation high school graduates, and many of them come from low-income households, where English is a second-language. They have the drive and desire to achieve great things, but many lack the support, guidance and resources at home to help them reach their full potential. RUP and RCP do a great job of keeping them up to date on all the hoops to jump through to make it in the college world, but some students really want the extra encouragement, support and expertise of a one-on-one mentor relationship.

That’s where you come in. As a mentor you will act as a resource and support for a student and help them successfully complete high school and transition into college. We will have monthly trainings for the academic piece, but equally important is expanding the students’ experiences and helping them see what is out beyond the Roseland community. We are looking for a 2 ½ year commitment of 2 hours monthly. Complete training and support is offered by mentor coordinators, so no need to be an expert in college requirements, all that is needed is a willingness to help your mentee navigate through this exciting and challenging time in their life and an openness to building a relationship that may last well beyond two years.

If this sounds like something you or someone you know would be interested in, please contact us for an application, which goes through the expectations and guidelines in more detail. We am also happy to answer any questions you may have. We hope you can help us bridge the education gap and make a difference in a student’s life by becoming a Roseland District mentor!

Mission Statement

Roseland University Prep is a small college preparatory high school located in the heart of the Roseland Community. Roseland University Prep opened in 2004 with the purpose of giving each student the opportunity to take college prep classes which would prepare them to attend a four-year university. The mission of Roseland University Prep is to offer students a small learning community with the promise to help support high school graduation and preparation for college. Our mission is driven by four basic principles: Academic Excellence, Individualized Learning, Shared Commitment, and a Small Learning Environment.

RUP does a great job of keeping them up to date on all the hoops to jump through to make it in the college world, but some students really want the extra help, support and expertise of a one-on-one mentor relationship. The mentorship program began when we noticed that our students were graduating and meeting the requirements to attend college, but many were dropping out their first year.
