Philadelphia Futures: a union of White-Williams Scholars and Philadelphia Futures seeks college-educated men and women from diverse personal and professional backgrounds to mentor first-generation-to-college high school students to help them achieve their dream of a college degree.
Philadelphia Futures’ SAS Program is grounded in the belief that a caring and committed adult can make a significant difference in the life of a student. We recognize the profound impact that a mentor can have on a student’s chance of graduating from high school, completing college and becoming economically self-sufficient.
A mentor in the Sponsor-A-Scholar (SAS) Program is a supportive adult who serves as a role model, advocate and cheerleader to one college-bound high school student. A mentor opens doors to new social, cultural and educational experiences and provides professional networks for a student.
Each mentor is matched with an individual SAS student and asked to make a long-term commitment to that student for a minimum of four years through, at least, the critical first year of collegeto help him or her reach college and ultimately earn a degree. Mentors are an integral part of our students’ success.
