Become a Mentor

We are always looking for caring, responsible, adult volunteers who can serve as a trusted friend, advisor and advocate to an Alray Scholar. As a mentor, you would support a scholar in developing important academic and life skills, identifying useful resources, making positive life decisions, and ultimately earning an Associate, Bachelor or vocational degree. Requirements include: commit to working with one scholar for a minimum of one year, attend orientation and training session(s), meet with your scholar once a month, maintain contact by connecting an additional 1-2 times in between meetings, empower your scholar to self-advocate within the academic environment, and check in with Alray staff and provide short progress reports 1-3 times/year.
