Post Secondary Success Mentors will be matched to an alumnus of the South Bronx United's Academy program, ages 18-24 most will be either in college or a recent college graduate. Mentors will support the mentee through either supporting a college student or on a career pathway. This would include reviewing resumes and cover letters, discussing potential career paths, reviewing internship and job opportunities, and mentoring them on best approaches to the job search, interviews, and more. Mentors will communicate with the mentee through email, phone calls, and in-person meetings.
SBU is looking for volunteers with a range of professional backgrounds; as volunteers are matched with alumni with related career paths, we cannot guarantee immediate matches.
Once a month, at the convenience of mentors/mentees.
Mentors commit to holding at least one meeting, remote or in-person, per month with their mentee. Each mentor is required to attend an orientation with the College Success Coordinator. Mentors are expected to commit to at least one academic year of support (September- May) ; since pairings are rolling and made according to the career interests of the alumnus, the start of a mentoring year may vary.
Mentors will often be matched with a mentee who has a career interest in the same professional area. Ideally mentors have served as mentors or managers in other professional contexts.
An orientation and training will be held with the College Success Coordinator and Director of College Guidance and Alumni.
In addition to helping provide the resources and support to allow underserved students to thrive in school, SBU is happy to connect with your school to see if your volunteer hours can work towards school service or academic requirements.
