The SEO Scholars Mentor Program has an enormous impact on both the young people that we serve and the mentors who support them. Our Scholars come from highly vulnerable populations and consistency is crucial to their social-emotional well being and relationship building with adults. To create the best conditions for a successful pairing, mentors commit to attending all designated sessions between September and May (12 sessions total, dates to be communicated within the next few weeks).
To ensure that Scholars are supported at each session, SEO Scholars SF maintains a list of substitute mentors to draw from when regular mentors are unable to attend. Mentor alternates are under no obligation to attend all session dates and agree to be contacted with requests for participation as the need arises.
