About

mentor2.0


Big Brothers Big Sisters - Pikes Peak
Colorado Springs, Colorado

Mentor2.0 matches high school students from Atlas Preparatory School with college-educated mentors in the Colorado Springs community, providing the students with support and guidance through their high school career to prepare them for their futures.

The majority of the mentorship is done over a secure online platform (iMentor) as a "pen pal mentorship." This allows for busy professionals to flex their time-investment around their schedules. In addition, there are monthly events for in-person mentoring facilitated by Big Brothers Big Sisters Pikes Peak and hosted by Atlas Preparatory School.

Volunteers must be 21 years of age, have a form of post-secondary education, and be able to pass an extensive background check.

Volunteers must also be willing to commit to the program for four years, as we try to make matches from freshman year through graduation. We want the students to have an example of consistency and commitment in their lives.

Right now, we still need some mentors for our current freshman class. However, we are starting to campaign for the upcoming school year - we will have around 130 new freshman next school year, and will need a mentor for each student.

This program would be great for companies or businesses that would like their employees to volunteer in the community; for the monthly meetings, they could all be together as a group in the setting.
