for joining the group of Spring Branch ISD leaders and community members to become mentors to high performing SBISD juniors and seniors. Together in the Collegiate Challenge program, we will shepherd these students through self discovery, career exploration and the twists and turns of the college application and acceptance process.
Mentors and mentees will be under the guidance of Sandra Newton, a volunteer from the College Resource Center, as relationships are built, stories are told, goals are set and achieved.
Weekly meetings will take place on the designated campus for about 1- 1.5 hours. Please check with the Collegiate Challenge coordinator at the campus where you plan to mentor to find out the mentoring times. Please bring a laptop if you have one to maximize the online work that can be accomplished.
WHAT IS A COLLEGIATE CHALLENGE MENTOR?
As a Collegiate Challenge mentor, your objective is to guide students in realizing their goals. Based on your expertise, personal experiences and your understanding of life skills, we want you to share your knowledge with the mentees. By sharing your own personal experiences--college, professional, or how you got your own child into college-- you will awaken in the mentees' minds different possibilities and scripts for their lives.
