We are looking for mentors to start in the fall to coach motivated high school students from the greater Newark/Jersey city areas. Our program includes training and 5/6 organized events per year. Mentored youth have significantly better chances for high school graduation and college acceptance, thereby significantly increasing life's opportunities. You can make a huge difference in someone's life!!
The mission of Student/Partner Alliance (S/PA) is to support motivated high school students at private high schools in New Jersey’s urban areas of Essex, Hudson and Union counties with tuition assistance and mentoring to increase their chances for college admission and scholarships, and ultimately to lead successful and productive lives.

The Mission of the Student/Partner Alliance is to support low-income, urban city high school students in Essex, Hudson and Union Counties of NJ with scholarship assistance and mentoring to increase their chances for college admission and scholarships so that they can ultimately lead productive and successful lives.
We raise money from individuals (we call them "Partners"), foundations and corporations to provide scholarships to urban parochial high schools for low income, motivated students who want to get a good high school education and go to college. Students, approximately 65% African American and 30% Hispanic, come from families with incomes under $40,000 per year. We also provide our students with mentors as mentored students have a significantly higher chance of graduating from high school and going to college.
We'll work with your schedule.
