Long term mentoring of a high school student from an under-resourced community

Volunteer with United Way of Greater Los Angeles and the Fulfillment Fund to help change lives for the better.
Fulfillment Fund is a college access organization with a 40 year history of helping disadvantaged students graduate from high school and access college. One of our key services is mentoring. Recognized as one of the best in the state, the Fulfillment Fund’s Mentor Program provides guidance from adult role models to students whose life circumstances challenge their opportunities for success.
Fulfillment Fund’s mentor program is community based, which means that mentors and their students decide when and where to meet for their outings. Mentors and their mentees meet 2x/month at the beginning of the match and 1x/month thereafter with a weekly text/phone call in between outings. The students in our program are chosen from several of our partner middle schools in Los Angeles and most live close to Downtown and South LA. Some of our mentors’ favorite outings with their students include: going to the beach, hiking, trying new restaurants, checking out museums, etc.
We typically request a 2-year committment from volunteer mentors, although there are occasional opportunities for 1-year commitments. Often these relationships have the opportunity to continue for 6 years or more.
