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.
