About

Want to help students reach their dream careers? Feel comfortable talking with high school students? If so, consider becoming a True Colors Activity Volunteer with Promise Scholars!

Promise Scholars is looking for enthusiastic individuals to help lead discussions with high school freshmen regarding the students’ personality strengths and career interests. Promise Scholars serves all Chaffey, Ontario, and Montclair High Schools' students, a population where only 8% of parents hold a college degree. So, volunteers will play a crucial part in helping these students, many of them who will be the first in their families to attend college, develop a college/career plan and develop aspirations for the future. In particular, volunteers will be asked to:

  • Guide a group of 5 -7 high school freshmen through a set of discussion questions regarding personality and career interests
  • Be able to share information about their own college and career pathways
  • Be able to commit to volunteer 2.5 hours between the hours of 8:30 am - 3:00 pm on the day of the True Colors Activity Event

From this activity, volunteers will gain:

  • Small group facilitation skills
  • Student management skills
  • Satisfaction of helping students in the community gain knowledge of the college and career pathway
