Sign up with Be A Mentor to be an Academic Mentor to a struggling youth.

We need your special skills and perspective to show a young person what opportunities they have and give them the confidence to work towards big goals.

An Academic Mentor is a trusted caring adult that spends at least one hour per week with their mentee using Be A Mentor’s Virtual Mentoring Platform.

Mentors focus on goal setting, homework help, and career exploration. While there may be a focus on homework help in the meetings, these sessions are more than just tutoring. Mentees form a personal relationship with their mentor to build resilience, social engagement, and a support network.

Virtual mentoring removes barriers of distance, requires no commute time, and can offer a flexible schedule.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has exacerbated many of the issues that youth were facing before the pandemic.

Now youth are dealing with:

  • Isolation
  • Anxiety
  • Falling behind in their studies
  • Low self esteem
  • Disbelief in a positive future

Academic Mentoring is life changing for youth.

Mentors Provide:

  • One-on-one attention
  • Study skills
  • Academic support
  • Goal setting
  • Encouragement for success
