Mentoring 7th-12th grade girls in Los Angeles County!

Who are MOSTe Mentors?
MOSTe Mentors are professional women with the desire to change the lives of girls from underserved neighborhoods of Los Angeles County. They are role models. They are willing to share their experience and wisdom, and listen to the thoughts and opinions of young girls who aspire to attend college. Becoming a MOSTe mentor allows you to play a meaningful role in a young woman's social and educational development. You can become a critical part of her support system as she advances on her path to college. MOSTe mentoring includes attending our workshops (typically one Saturday a month at USC), chaperoning a Saturday bus ride to a MOSTe event, bringing your scholar to cultural events, accompanying her on college fairs and college tours, introducing her to friends and family, go out for fun, listening to her ideas, concerns and more. It is a very rewarding expereince!

"In order to be a mentor, and an effective one, one must care. You must care. You don't have to know how many square miles are in Idaho, you don't need to know what is the chemical makeup of chemistry, or of blood or water. Know what you know and care about the person, care about what you know and care about the person you're sharing with."
- Maya Angelou

"A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself."
- Oprah
