To be a Say Yes Mentor we ask volunteers to commit to a relationship with one of our students for a period of 18-months or through that student’s first year of post-secondary education.
During this time, mentors are expected to make at minimum four monthly contacts with their mentee in which at least two should be scheduled face-to-face meetings lasting at least an hour. Other contacts can be via phone, text, email, Skype, Face Time, etc.
In addition to regularly communicating with your mentee, all mentors are required to attend:
- An initial orientation meeting
- Two training sessions annually
- At least two scheduled Say Yes Scholar Mentor Program events annually
You will also be invited to attend optional mentor/mentee group events and recognition events.
