What is I AM?
Many high school seniors who are eligible to go to college do not attend because they are unaware of their college options or don’t receive information related to the college admissions process. To overcome these obstacles, we have created a mentoring program to provide one-on-one support to guide seniors through the college admissions process by helping with college applications, personal statements, and financial aid.
2 – 4 hours a month during the 2012-2013 academic year (September – June).
Mentors may meet with students after work hours or on the weekends. Mentor orientation trainings will be provided on September 12th and 13th. Prior experience working with high schools students is preferred but not necessary.
