The Mentor 2.0 program focuses on college readiness and success for high school students, particularly those who are slated to become first-generation college students. Mentors and mentees communicate through weekly writing activities, discussing important topics such as professionalism, perseverance, self-advocacy, college financial aid, and career choices. In addition to email communication, mentors and mentees meet in-person eight times per year at Big Brothers Big Sisters-sponsored activities. These activities will be held throughout the school year, on weeknight evenings.
