MENTORS are needed for the 2023-2024 academic school year at Alta Vista, Mountain View, or Los Altos High Schools
Are you passionate about helping others and making a positive impact in your community? Consider becoming a mentor!
Our program is currently seeking individuals age 22 or older who are interested in being matched with a high school student with similar interests at Alta Vista, Mountain View, or Los Altos High Schools. As a mentor, you will serve as a non-judgmental role model and provide guidance and support to your mentee.
During the first month of the program, mentors are expected to meet with their mentee once a week. After the first month, meetings should occur at least twice a month, and a one-year commitment is strongly recommended. The "match meeting" between mentor, mentee, and Mentor Program Manager will kick off the mentor-mentee relationship. From there, you will collaborate with your mentee to determine future meeting locations and times.
In addition to working with your mentee, you'll attend mini-trainings with other mentors to build your skills and knowledge. Mentor Program Managers will also be available to provide support and guidance throughout the program.
If you're ready to make a difference in the life of a young person and help them achieve their full potential, we encourage you to apply to be a mentor today!

About Mentor Tutor Connection
PO Box 1473, Los Altos, CA 94023, US
The mission of Mentor Tutor Connection is to enhance academic and life skills for students through individualized volunteer tutoring and mentoring. We serve the students in the public schools of Los Altos and Mountain View.
Mentor Tutor Connection (MTC) is a community-based and supported non-profit organization that provides tutors at elementary and middle school grade levels in the Los Altos and Mountain View Whisman School Districts and mentors to students in the three high schools in the Mountain View Los Altos High School District.
Tutoring: For elementary and middle school children, we offer tutoring during the school day under the supervision of the classroom teacher and help with homework in after school programs. Most of the tutoring is in basic skills but subjects can range from reading skills, English, math, and science. We also may assist English language learners or students in special programs such as public speaking or science labs. Our tutors must be high school graduates.
Mentoring: All mentor volunteers are placed at the high school level. Mentors are carefully screened and interviewed by one of our experienced Mentor Program Managers for the purpose of creating a good match with a student who has been referred to the program. Mentor training is provided and ongoing support is available through the Mentor Program Managers. The role of the mentor is to spend time with the student, be a good listener, and provide a positive influence in the student’s life. Our mentors must be at least 22 years of age.
