Transform a young student's life by supporting their college dreams. Become the catalyst for helping a student become the first in his or her family to attend college.

BEING A MENTOR

The mentoring component consists of pairing our students with young professionals who have been through the college application process and who can help the students navigate the steps and requirements as they go through it. Our mentors act as catalysts for the students, providing them with individual support and guidance, allowing each student to fulfill his or her potential and make the leap to college.

BEING AN INSTRUCTOR

The instructional component of our programs is designed to equip students with the knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary for success on high-stakes standardized tests. Our instructors serve as guides and role models for our students, encouraging and motivating them to deepen their understanding of key content and achieve their educational goals. Instructors serve in a variety of different roles: as SAT/ACT tutors, as Writing & Critical Thinking Advisors and, for our most experienced teachers, as Lead Instructors of a particular class or subject area. When you apply to be an instructor, we will work to match you to a role that best fits your skills and experience.
