Your Role

Our mentors are expected to provide direct, one-to-one college advising to their assigned student client. The assignment process of matching mentors to student clients is based on an assessment of shared academic and extracurricular interests as well as other selective criteria. This thoughtful matching process allows our mentors to best offer relevant personal experience and valuable counsel.

Supporting our clients toward achieving compelling ‘self-portraits’ in their college applications is but one important aspect of your work.

For our student clients, a mentor’s true value reveals itself through the skillful ways in which you translate your insights into individualized strategies that capitalize on an applicant’s unique personal achievements, qualities, and experiences. Supporting our clients toward achieving compelling ‘self-portraits’ in their college applications is but one important aspect of your work. Identification and appropriate selection of target colleges, scholarship opportunities, coursework requirements, and other forms of advising keep your job varied and interesting. Because collaboration most often yields new perspectives, our mentors are also encouraged to solicit additional input and ideas from our expansive mentor network.

In addition to serving the varied needs of our student clients, mentor volunteers are expected to contribute their talents and skills toward advancing ReadySetLaunch’s organizational goals. Opportunities exist in all departments, including Human Resources, Operation, Outreach, and Hotline.
