As a Senior Enrichment Mentor, you have an opportunity to help Minds Matter students synthesize what they have learned during the first two years in the program. As in previous years, students have the opportunity to strengthen skills in math, writing, and critical thinking. However, in Senior Enrichment the focus is on preparing Minds Matter mentees for success in college. This means we help students with skills gaps in math and writing, as well as work with them to build strong public speaking and critical reasoning skills. Senior Enrichment activities change over the course of the year after students complete the college application process.
Time Commitment: 3-4 hours per week from October through May, including approximately three Saturday sessions per month from 10:00am-12:00pm.
More detail: Each mentee is paired with one mentor for each subject area.
