GS Mentor Program
Program Description
Guardian Scholar Mentor Program is an opportunity for students to connect to campus staff in a more personal way. Mentors will serve to help with school but also to teach skills and lessons that may be relevant to the student’s life. This is a great way for students to get connected on campus and develop the type of relationship that can lead to a “letter of recommendation” for a scholarship or future job. These mentors will get to know you not as a “foster youth” but as a person, the struggles you face, the way you view things, and help you develop the different aspects you want to work on.
