What Do Mentors Do
The Say Yes Cleveland mentor program uses a unique, online platform to guide communication between mentor and mentee with an interactive and personalized curriculum.
As the program develops, a few events are expected to be hosted throughout the year to bring mentor-mentee pairs together, and also to create space for mentors and mentees to learn from one another.
In the first two years of the relationship, mentors provide crucial college-going advice to students, many of whom are the first in their families to attend college. As students become upperclassmen and begin looking beyond college, mentors also provide professional connections and assistance to help students transition into the working world.
We ask mentors to commit to a mentor-mentee relationship during the student’s post-secondary academic career. Mentors and mentees exchange messages twice per month and meet in person three times per year.
