Meet The New HEAR Scholar Class of 2024!

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.

 

Mentoring is well-documented as being key to ensure college perseverance and completion.

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 2024 Announced!
