Enroot is seeking volunteers to have the flexibility to meet with an immigrant youth virtually for the 2020-2021 academic year.

As a mentor, you are a role model, adviser, friend, and guide helping your mentee to dream big, set goals, and pursue them. All mentees in the Enroot Program are immigrant high school students in Somerville and Cambridge.

Every week, our mentoring pairs connect for structured activities designed by Enroot, work on college applications, or to catch up- it all depends on you and your mentee’s interests and needs. You will likely guide your mentee in the following areas: building positive relationships, exploring careers, planning higher education, and practicing English. Enroot provides mentoring training and support, in addition to Cultural Consciousness trainings to help you in your journey as an Enroot volunteer.

We are specifically looking for mentors who speak one (or more!) of the following languages: Spanish, Haitian Creole, Bengali, Amharic, Portuguese, or Hindi. Speaking another language is not a requirement and we encourage anyone interested to apply!

Join our community of passionate and motivated volunteers!

Mission Statement

Enroot Education is a community-based nonprofit with a mission to empower immigrant youth to achieve academic, career, and personal success through inspiring out-of-school experiences.

Description

For the last 26 years, Enroot has supported low-income immigrant students at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School set ambitious life goals and achieve them. The program has recently expanded to include students at Somerville High School. The program’s holistic wrap-around model includes 1-1 tutoring, 1-1 mentoring, paid internships, leadership seminars, and community service. Enroot's independent 20-year alumni impact evaluation revealed that program graduates complete college at twice the rate of their peer cohort and experience success entering the workforce.
