We are seeking mentors to be paired with current college students. Wesley House Student Residence is a non-profit organization that provides housing and support services to low-income, at-risk, former, and homeless college students. It currently houses 23 students in an 11 unit apartment building. All the students are currently attending college and have a range of majors from Business, Nursing, Computer Science, Psychology, and Social work. An ideal mentor will be able to meet (virtually) until safe to meet in-person a minimum of 2 times a month for an hour for a year (you may be assigned more than 1 student). They will work with their mentee to create educational, career, personal, and financial goals while getting to know each other.
Our mission is to assist the student residents of Wesley House in their academic goals at college or university by providing a safe place to live and study. We provide a network of support services for students that foster a greater sense of accomplishment, self-esteem, and community and belonging; better preparing them to advocate for themselves and to contribute to society. Our vision is to provide equal access to quality housing and support for college and university students so they may succeed in college while facing life challenges.
