Mentoring

Navigating course selection, college life, and career preparation can be difficult and overwhelming for first-generation students with few financial resources.



We carefully match each scholar with a caring adult volunteer who we train to provide social, academic, and career advice, help with problem-solving, and serve as a role model throughout college and often beyond. Mentors communicate regularly with their scholars, join them at PCF events, coach them through challenges and celebrate their successes.

Of all the components of our programming, our scholars believe that mentoring is the most impactful. This long-term commitment, with the deep relationships it builds, is a highly rewarding experience for both mentors and scholars.
