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.

 

In May 2020, we will award up to 30 new scholarships and we are 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.

Class of 2023 Announced!

Congratulations to our newest HEAR Scholars!
