PSP Mentors help motivated students from low-income communities explore the world while preparing them to become first in their families to attend and graduate from college.
It’s easy to be an amazing mentor ! By mentoring a young student, you can help them navigate through school, expose them to all kinds of new experiences and build a caring relationship that goes both ways. Mentors expose their students to new cultural experiences like going to plays, eating new kinds of food and visiting museums. You support their college goals by visiting colleges and help them stay focused on school. Mentors and students typically go one outing each month. PSP reimburses mentors for their expenses, so finances don’t have to be a barrier to becoming a mentor.
