|In this phase...|
You and your mentee will discuss scholarships and financial aid options, work on post-secondary program applications and track your progress through the steps necessary for successful enrollment after high school graduation. If needed, you may also support your mentee in crafting their college application essay or seeking letters of recommendation. Don't forget to keep investing in the strength of your personal relationship as the post-secondary work becomes tactical during this phase - be sure to share your own experience as you navigated the post-secondary process and regularly check in on how your mentee is feeling throughout their journey.
