From Junior to Leader this Fall
The value of your mentee holding leadership positions in highschool is threefold: boosts college applications, builds self-esteem, and invests in their future.
And there are numerous options available for students to shine:
Academic teams (math team, debate club, etc.)
Arts (theater, band, choir, glee club, dance, etc.)
Employment (afterschool jobs, internships, etc.)
Political organizations (model U.N., alliance of students of color, international relations club, etc.)
Publications (school newspaper, literary magazine, yearbook, etc.)
Take the PSAT for National Merit Scholarship Eligibility
The PSAT gives you an opportunity to understand the standardized test experience. Your scores will not be sent to colleges and do not impact your high school grades. You should still take this test seriously: PSAT scores determine your eligibility for National Merit Scholarships.
Locally, your mentee can source funds from Alumni clubs, volunteer groups like Kiwanis and Knights of Columbus, plus many private family and memorial foundations. Our students need financial help for more than just college tuition. There are summer programs and internship opportunities that may require tuition fees, as well. The great news is that there are over 19 billion dollars from 3.7 million grants available to them! Scholarships.com is a great resource for filtering through them all.
