A student will get matched with a few mentors and will select one after reviewing profiles, so put your best foot forward!
To assist us in keeping our overhead costs to a minimum, we ask each mentor to cover the cost of their background check.
Once you register, you will have access to Strive’s mentor training material. It will take about an hour to review. Additional resources are available.
We recommend video chatting with your student for your first meeting, as this allows you to get to know them better. Mentors spend around an hour a week mentoring their student. This time could include reviewing and sending feedback on an essay, helping them research colleges, or chatting about upcoming deadlines.
