If your mentee is in a 4 year college pathway, your main goals are to:
Continue to build a strong relationship with your mentee. This strong relationship will be the foundation for any work you do together in the future.
Support your mentee in overcoming summer melt and sophomore melt to matriculate, start college, and return to college each semester.
Support your mentee in successfully completing their college degree, helping them to adapt to the academic, social/emotional/cultural, and financial demands of being in college (and possibly away from home).
Help your mentee explore career options and lay the groundwork for career success, including meaningful summer activities and networking.
