Waukegan to College | Mentor

A mentor is a loyal advisor, guide, confidant, and role model. They are a caring individual (other
than the parent or guardian) who will help students with postsecondary college plans. Mentors
will be part of a team that supports a young person through an ongoing, one-to-one
relationship, and serve as a positive role model and friend. Mentors help students explore
careers, colleges, life skills, and communication etiquette. Or maybe it’s a trip to the theater or
dinner.
