Clark State Scholars Program Mentor
Looking to encourage young scholars to work toward a college education? You've come to the right place!
A critical component of the Clark State Scholars Program is the development of a support system to encourage the young scholars to work toward a college education and to help expose them to enrichment experiences they might not otherwise have. The level of involvement of each mentor will vary according to his/her availability. However, the goal is to spend at least 30-45 minutes with the scholars every month. The goal is to make enough visits during the year to establish a relationship with the students. Contact us to take the next steps in becoming a mentor!
