Continuing the Program

Requirement 1

Meet with Your Mentee 2X a Month

  • Visits are scheduled during specified elective hours throughout the school year. Every mentor will receive their mentees' school schedules via email once they have completed the match survey and background check, indicating the times they are permitted to visit their mentee. 

  • Participating in mentee-mentor socials is credited as both a participation point and meeting attendance credit, but only on a single occasion per semester. 

Requirement 2

Meet with Your Assigned Program Coordinator 3x a Year.

Who are Program Coordinators?

Upon enrollment in the program, a program coordinator will be assigned to each mentor and will initiate contact with them. The coordinator's responsibilities include monitoring the mentor's progress in the program, ensuring compliance with requirements, providing mentor trainings, and assistance for any inquiries related to mentorship. The meetings will be brief, conducted virtually, and will be scheduled based on the mentor's availability.

EEA Incetives

Aim to Complete 3 Participation Points Each Semester.

What are participation points?

Participation points can be earned by actively engaging as mentors at EEA/school events or by making donations to our organization. While not mandatory, earning points is highly encouraged. To accrue credit, mentors should actively participate in mentor-mentee events, attend mentor-specific gatherings, contribute to fundraising events, engage in various miscellaneous activities, or contribute items or funds to support our organization.
