Part-Time Volunteer Openings

Program Mentor

Mentors ground their mentees in the Minds Matter Monday night experience. Supported by volunteer program leaders who facilitate a prepared curriculum, Mentors engage in conversation and connection building while drawing from our shared goals. Mentors don’t need to be experts in the following topics – they need to be willing to show up consistently and work through the prepared activities together:

  • Establish a Mentoring Relationship
  • Academic and College Guidance
  • Personal and Leadership Development
  • College Readiness and Transition
  • Attend Mentor Training and Program Events

Mentoring typically involves a commitment of approximately 8 - 10 hours per month during the academic year. Minds Matter Colorado does not host programming during the summer or whenever school is out of session (winter break, spring break, etc.). The long-term time commitment is 3 years. We’re asking students to commit to 3 years of the program, so a matching commitment of support from caring adults is what we’re looking for.
