PROMOTING HISPANIC EDUCATION SINCE 1983  

MENTORING

Our staff matches students with adults based on similar interests, fields of study, or career paths. Meeting times are arranged between staff, mentors, students, and parents. Mentoring can be one-on-one or in our gender-specific groups.

A mentor is a coach, sponsor, guide, advocate and role model. A mentor is a friend, advisor, teacher and resource person. A mentor provides instructional support, promotes greater involvement in school activities, encourages responsible behavior, fosters a positive self-image, helps mentees develop post-high school plans and expands awareness of career possibilities and the realities of the world of work.

Having a mentor through Esperanza can be done one-on-one or in gender-specific groups. In the one-on-one matches, student mentees are matched with adult mentors based on similar interests, fields of study, or career paths. In the group mentoring, a group of mentees meet with a group of adults to discuss life lessons and do group activities, such as basketball.

Esperanza currently facilitates more than 50 mentor—mentee relationships during the school year which happen, on average, once a week for one hour. For this program to be successful, Esperanza ensures that three areas of the program are well developed: mentorship training, appropriate matching, and parental support.

For more information on any of these offerings, or to register, contact our Mentoring staff.
 

ONE-ON-ONE MENTORING

A mentor is a coach, sponsor, guide, advocate and role model. A mentor is a friend, advisor, teacher & resource person. A mentor provides instructional support, promotes greater involvement in school activities, encourages responsible behavior, fosters a positive self-image, helps protégés develop post-high school plans & expands awareness of career possibilities and the realities of the world-of work.

COLLEGE MENTORING

The premise of College Mentorship stems from the fact that one small and short encounter with mentor-mentee can impact a life forever. One small text comforting a student when they have a disagreement with a roommate… a quick email to say, “Hope all is well...” can add to the likelihood of our students not only matriculating, but graduating college.
