Mentors needed for motivated low-income high school students

Save to Favorites


Recruiting Organization: Minds Matter San Francisco

Minds Matter is an all-volunteer run non-profit that transforms the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success.

Beginning their sophomore year of high school, each of our incredible students is matched with two mentors who work with them to discover, plan for, and ready themselves for college. This includes building a strong, trusting, empathetic relationship with their mentees. Our mentors serve as positive role models and catalysts for the students, encouraging them to fulfill their full potential.

What we look for the ability to:

  • Commit at least one year with MMSF, three preferred.
  • Show up prepared for session every Saturday 12:15pm-2:30pm from August through May (no sessions around SFUSD holidays).
  • Be accessible during the week for your mentee and the broader MMSF community.
  • Set stretch goals and standards that mentees can achieve.
  • Be conscientious and communicative, demonstrating responsiveness and providing advance notice of absences.
  • Build rapport and trust with people of all different backgrounds, experiences and ages; especially people from first generation or low-income backgrounds.
  • A passion for MMSF's mission and the students we serve.
  • Prior experience mentoring or coaching at-risk, first generation, or low-income youth a plus.

Applications are now open for the 2019-20 school year! Applicants will be invited to interview on a rolling basis from March-May with decisions released in waves through June/July.
