High School April Break Mentor Application
Blake Sims, Program Director of Social Innovation for Innovate@BU is organizing an entrepreneurship program for 50 Boston/Lawrence high school students during their April break, April 16-19 at BU. She is seeking 15-20 mentors ($50/shift!) with experience in innovation and entrepreneurship that can leverage their knowledge and skills to support student teams as they develop their own startup ideas during their morning workshops. A great mentor is energetic, personable and interested in making a positive impact on students.

What does mentor support mean?
- Mentors leverage their personal experiences, knowledge and skills to positively impact student/team progress
- Mentors work with 1-2 teams (groups of 5-6 students) to keep them on task and on track with their project
- Mentors support their teams by asking questions and providing guidance, but avoids making decisions for the team
- Mentors complete an “exit ticket” at the end of their shift that captures team progress and next steps (really helpful for the following day’s mentor!)

Commitment details:
- Mentor shifts are Tuesday, April 16 - Friday, April 19 from 9am-12:30pm (FULL)
*Note that Wednesday, April 17th is a BU MONDAY class schedule (due to Marathon Monday on April 15) (FULL)
*Tuesday-Thursday workshops will take place at Questrom. (FULL)
*Friday's workshop will take place at the Earl Center (Fenway Campus). (OPEN)
- Mentors can sign up for as many shifts as their schedule allows
- Mentors are paid $50 per shift
- Mentors agree to review a more detailed prep email sent 1-2 days before their shift and complete an "exit" ticket that summarizes team progress during each shift
