Recruiting Organization: LINK Unlimited Scholars
Our Scholars’ growth and future success is supported by the unique relationship between LINK Mentors and Scholars. We match civic-minded professionals across a wide range of industries-from education and business to finance and medicine-who all share one goal: to transform the lives of high-potential Black students in Chicago.
What does it mean to be a Link Mentor?
Our Mentors commit to guiding a Scholar for his or her entire fellowship. We provide training and resources to equip and support our Mentors in this vital piece of our four-year high school fellowship model.
As a LINK Mentor, you will:
- Be a guide for your Scholar’s high school experience
- Support your Scholar’s development and program participation
- Increase your Scholar’s social equity through professional advice & networking
What do mentors do?
Our Mentors walk with their LINK Scholar along their entire journey through their four-year high school fellowship.
- Nurture your relationship with your Scholar
We recommend reaching out twice a month via phone, email, text, or video call and arranging at least four in-person engagements a year. In addition to the scholar’s parent or guardian, you will become an integral part of their educational ecosystem.
- Show your Scholar support by attending key LINK events
You’ll attend a Class Session, a College Fair, and an End of Year Celebration between September and June. You will also receive professional development training on mentoring best practices, equity and anti-racism, and civic engagement.
- Make a personal investment in your Scholar’s future
Giving your best financial gift towards Scholar programming is a mission critical component of the Mentor partnership. There is no gift amount too big or too small. Each year, you will give a tax-deductible donation to help support your Scholar’s success in the fellowship.
