Guide a young adult to success.

Year Up creates a supportive community for our students—and we’re always looking for new faces to help. A mentorship is an especially personal way to impact a young adult’s life.

As a mentor to a Year Up student, you’ll have a unique opportunity to help young adults navigate new experiences and shape their careers. It’s your chance to inspire—and be inspired by—motivated, up and-coming talent in the workforce. You’ll also have opportunities to network with like-minded professionals.

What’s Involved:

Email or call your mentee once a week
Meet face-to-face with your mentee once a month for an 8-month period
Assist in building and accessing professional networks and in reviewing resumes and college forms
Encourage continuous learning and problem solving
Attend the Year Up graduation and recognize your student
What mentors bring:

The ability and desire to work with young adults (ages 18-24) from diverse urban backgrounds
A positive attitude and good listening skills
The willingness to share your knowledge and experiences
Patience, understanding, and a sense of humor
