We are excited to soon announce our first class of scholarship award winners and students for our mentorship program! But we are missing one special ingredient: You!
Our Friend for a Journey Mentorship Program is a year-long mentorship program designed to match mentors and students from our applicant pool. There are designated activities for the mentor that also allows the flexibility for mentors to arrange their own activities.
There will be 12 scheduled meetings, led by a dynamic speaker who will a focus on a different topic that impacts college students. Open discussion is encouraged as different viewpoints can help students understand various ways to tackle situations. These power meetings will be life changing.
There are a variety of reasons to become a mentor:
- Become a “big brother or sister”
- Create countless memories
- Experience a sense of pride in another individual’s progression in life
- Give back to the community
- Help assist a younger version of yourself
We hope that you will become a mentor to an amazing student. We have designed our mentorship program in such a way that it does not require a large time commitment, but will also be a fun personal enrichment experience for your mentee! You will also have the ability to structure your own actives with your student mentees, supporting your schedule and pre-existing commitments.
If you are interested in learning more, Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at 6:30 pm we are going to host a mentorship information dinner. Come join us to find out more! Please RSVP by visiting our RSVP under Events on our website and you will be provided with location details.
Thank you for your support and I look forward to your help in developing our future leaders!
With much appreciation and gratitude,
Brian L. Fontenot, Founder/CEO
