1-on-1 mentoring with low-income, first-generation college students!

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

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!

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.


YOU DO NOT NEED PRIOR EXPERIENCE in mentoring, teaching, tutoring, or work with youth. All you need is excitement and a dedication to learn!
