Be the mentor you always wish you had.
At Denver Urban Scholars, we believe in a life of choice and opportunity for every student. We are a local non-profit that partners with high poverty, high performing schools to unlock the potential of students facing added challenges. By providing social, emotional, academic, and mentoring support, our scholars have the tools to create an individual pathway to college and career.
Mentors are allies in this vision, as they serve to establish a personal bond with their scholar, supporting their scholar's progress in achieving personal and academic goals, as well as opening opportunities for new experiences that encourage growth!
For this opportunity, we are seeking caring adults to be matched 1:1 with junior high and high school students in our program. The time/schedule requirement includes 2 face-to-face meetings per month (at minimum), with weekly contact in between. This time commitment can be anywhere from 8-12 hours, but is completely flexible. Once you are matched, you and your mentee can schedule when/where/how often you meet.
Make a difference and become a mentor at Denver Urban Scholars!
