I am a member of the Step Up Women's Network and we are needing about 20 more mentors this Saturday at a great event! Would you please consider coming to be a mentor for the day? Please give one day to make a difference in the life of a college-bound teen girl. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can get you all signed up. To read more about Step Up visit their website of their Facebook page.
Details are: Saturday, October 27th from 9:foam-3:30pm at Xavier College at 3700 West 103rd Street in Chicago.
Enjoy an impactful one-day mentorship opportunity that pairs you with a teen girl to support as she prepares for her journey to college. Given that most Step Up teens will be the first in their family to attend college, your participation as a successful, college-educated career woman provides inspiration and support that ignites big dreams and supports our college-bound culture.
As a mentor, you will work one-on-one with your mentee in various conference workshops and activities. You will serve as a source of inspiration and motivation with your encouraging attitude and stories of your own personal college journey. No specialized knowledge in the college application process is required.
You will take your mentee through workshop sessions such as:
Campus Scavenger Hunt
College Search: How to Find Your Perfect Fit
Application Basics & Mock Admissions
Get Money: Scholarships and Financial Aid 101
College Student Q&A
Goal Setting: Creating Your Path to College
As a mentor, you need only bring the following:
A desire to make an impact on the lives of underserved teen girls
A spirit of encouragement for higher-education
A commitment to attend the entire day
A fun, flexible and energetic attitude
