Ways to help


Mentoring at its essence, let’s students know that there is someone invested and committed to them. A mentor helps a young person understand that they are not alone. They help to provide guidance and may act as a sounding board when students are faced with day-to-day challenges. Effective mentoring offers students the opportunity for personal growth and development as well as exposes them to social and economic opportunities. Research has shown that quality mentoring relationships have positive effects that last a lifetime. By becoming a Starfish Mentor and supporting a Starfish Scholar academically and socially, sharing your professional experiences and networks, you will help to place them on a path to success. You will let our Scholars know they matter.
