Read the Mentor Collective's Partner Impact Report for AY 20-21, which highlights our Center's programs.
Below are quotes from past participants of our program.
“As someone who has endured much hardship to get where I am, it is a priority of mine to give back by empowering others who may find themselves in one of the sticky positions I was once in as a student myself. I want to invest in others to make their journey easier.” – Sarah, Mentor
“[My mentor] helped with recruiting and with interview questions! I have sent her information from potential employers and she has helped me with advice from her experience!” – Shayfer, Mentee
“I signed up because I remember being a student trying to navigate college life and came to know how important it is to take advantage of all the opportunities it provides. I'm very passionate about helping the youth and this program has allowed me to encourage students to try new things, network, identify and focus on their goals. I can’t wait to hear more success stories from my mentees!” – Shavon, Mentor
“[My mentor] has helped me schedule my classes and feel comfortable with the workload I am taking on, which has allowed me to balance my academics with leadership opportunities and working in a research lab. I feel like I've learned a lot from her about knowing how much you can take on and figuring out ways to organize classes to still get things done and enjoy what you're doing.” – Marie, Mentee
“[My mentor] is a great mentor. She is very helpful, she's given me many resources to help me be a better person and student. We have emailed back and forth because she lives a far distance but that doesn't stop her from reaching out. I am happy she is my mentor, it's easy to talk with her and just be myself.” - Deja’, Mentee
