“The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own”.

– Disraeli

To date, the HEAR Scholarship Foundation has awarded over 180 college scholarships to high school graduates in financial need, who showed perseverance and demonstrated academic excellence. Many of these students are first-generation college-goers in their family. We are delighted to be able to provide each of them with an individual mentor who can help them navigate their new and exciting journey! We firmly believe that HEAR’s 96% graduation rate is due in large part to the support, safety and encouragement that the mentoring program provides each scholar in HEAR’s College Success Program.


“I truly believe that most people seek opportunities to live purposely and to help others. Mentoring is a way to do both. Through the HEAR Mentoring Program, individuals can work with college bound HEAR scholars to guide and support them throughout their college career. Through mentoring, we all have the ability to help change lives.”

Patti Kelly, founder of HEAR’s Mentoring Program.

Who would you mentor? The HEAR Mentoring team works hard to pair mentors with scholars based on job experience, background and personality.

Becoming a mentor has the potential to change not just the life of our scholars, but yours too, as you share your knowledge and experience. Watch your mentee successfully graduate from college and move on in the world knowing that you had a positive influence on a young person’s life.
