Career Mentors will be matched to an alumnus of the South Bronx United's SBU Academy program-most will be either in college or a recent college graduate. Mentors will support the mentee through the career planning and career search process. 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.
Preference is for applicants already serving as volunteers, supporters, or board members.
Dates: Calendar Year, Jan - December mentorship period
Times: At the mentor’s convenience
Career Mentors commit to holding at least one meeting, remote or in-person, per month with their mentee. Occasional training sessions and meetings with staff are held.
Mentors will often be matched with a mentee who has 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.
Academic Coaches are welcome and encouraged to come out and see a game or get involved in a practice as youth are extremely passionate about the sport and it's a great way to connect with the kids.
