Organization Information

Mission Statement

Enroot serves immigrant high school students in Cambridge and Somerville, MA. Our students hail from more than 30 countries and speak more than 20 languages. All of our students are matched 1-1 with a caring adult mentor. Our mentors help our students to dream big, set goals, and pursue them. Some pairs meet up each week at Enroot's office for structured activities, while others meet up once a week to work on college applications at a local coffee shop. Mentors guide their mentees in the following areas: building positive relationships, exploring careers, planning higher education, and practicing English.

Description

Mentors must be over 21 years of age. Mentoring typically happens between 6:00 - 7:30 PM on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Specific location and timing is dependent on the student's cohort and school. We are specifically looking for mentors who speak one (or more!) of the following languages: Spanish, Haitian Creole, Bengali, Amharic, Portuguese, or Hindi. Speaking another language is not a requirement and we encourage anyone interested to apply!
