A key component of Higher Achievement’s success is our mentoring program. Higher Achievement mentors are role models with varied backgrounds. Our mentors are passionate and committed role models who dedicate one night a week (Monday or Tuesday) from 6:00pm - 8:15pm to the success of our scholars by teaching a small group of 5th or 6th graders in a core academic subject: math, ELA, or elective seminar. Some grew up in the same communities as the scholars they mentor; others grew up in other parts of the country or world. Some live in the city; others commute from the suburbs.

Together, these mentors build a rich community that exposes Higher Achievement scholars to new perspectives and support. Our mentors, in turn, are rewarded with the experience of making a dramatic and clear impact on the lives of young people - and they are connected with a network of hundreds of professionals who are similarly invested in their communities.
