Mentor - Grounding Waters 
Being a Blueprint Mentor means having the opportunity to serve Portland's Black-identified youth community, supporting their aspirations and success, with a focus on environmental science. These relationships are founded on trust and respect, leaving enduring impacts. Mentors also contribute to planet restoration and sustainability, guiding youth to fulfill their potential while nurturing their relationships to our environment and community through responsibility, advocacy, and encouragement.

GW Programs meet once a week on Saturdays throughout the academic school year and meet more often in the summertime. Mentors are encouraged and expected to conduct micro-outings with their students as well, utilizing Blueprint connections and resources to experiential learning opportunities. Being a mentor also entails assisting with transporting students to and from weekly outings, however this is not a requirement for mentoring. Please complete this contract to sign up for a mentor role in the program.
