Mentor a Long Beach 8th-10th grade student!

Save to Favorites


Recruiting Organization: Operation Jump Start

Operation Jump Start's mission is to help low-income, first-generation college students get in, stay in, and graduate from a four-year college. We do this by providing academic support, mentoring, and exposure to a broader world.

Our College Access program pairs 8th-10th grade Long Beach students with a volunteer mentor, who provides guidance, support, and fun outings to students who are in the early stages of their career and college planning.

The mentor serves as a role model and friend to support students in reaching their full potential. This includes one-on-one time getting to know and building trust with your mentee; planning and attending enriching outings to enjoy together; and offering support as the student navigates their college planning. Many of our mentor/mentees forge truly meaningful bonds, maintaining their relationship long after the formal mentorship program ends!

The time commitment is 4-6 hours a month with your mentee, over a span of 1-3 years, in order to follow a young student's journey throughout their early high school years.

Our mentors tell us that this is a rewarding and life-changing experience. This is a heartwarming opportunity for adults who wish to give back to our youth.

The requirements for this opportunity are:

  • Must be a college graduate
  • Must be over the age of 24
  • Must pass background check

Thank you for considering us! Feel free to reach out directly to our Community Outreach Coordinator at with any questions.
