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!

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 most 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 help, 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 him/her 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 support and optional trainings are 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 his/her life.

Even in these times of distance learning, etc. mentors are needed more than ever! We will facilitate and advise on virtual "meeting" opportunities until in-person meetings are possible.

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 an 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.

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.
