HEAR Mentoring

 

Mentoring is an essential part of our program. HEAR pairs every new Scholar with an adult mentor.

They serve as guides to our under-resourced and often first-generation scholars throughout their college careers.

 

We have just awarded 30 new scholarships to exemplary high school students and we are actively looking for mentors for this HEAR Class of 2024.

Become a mentor for one of our future scholars and feel a sense of satisfaction knowing that you personally made a difference in someone’s life.

If you, or anyone you know, are interested in learning more about becoming a mentor, please contact us at info@hearfoundation.org.
