VOLUNTEER POSITIONS:Mentors meet 1:1 with their mentee 1-2 hours a week. The mentoring relationship lasts one academic year (October-June), with the hope that pairs will continue for multiple years when possible. Mentors help with language and communication skills, relationship building skills, postsecondary planning, career exploration, and more - every relationship is a little different. Mentors participate in 4-6 hours of training in the fall.
Tutors meet 1:1 with a student once a week to provide help with one or more academic subjects and/or test preparation. It's important for tutors to be able to commit to 1½ hours at the same time each week for an academic semester. Tutors participate in a two-hour training in the fall.
College Success mentors provide 1:1 support to Enroot students in their first and second year of college. Mentors are expected to check in with their mentee biweekly (via text, phone, facebook, WhatsApp, etc.) and meet with their student 2-4 times per semester. Every month, Enroot staff will provide content to discuss with the student, ranging from study habit techniques to self-care to dorm-life.
