About Our MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
The SAWCC has developed a Mentorship Program that will lend itself to the commitment of the SAWCC Foundation's Scholarship Program to create a path for success for the recipients of their Scholarship Program.
The Mentor-Mentee relationship will provide a college student the opportunity to explore career options, seek leadership guidance, educational resources, support with developing social and decision-making skills, and continue to build a positive supportive social network. Most importantly, this program aids the student in ways to maintain focus on their academic success.
What is mentoring?
Mentoring is a mutual relationship and partnership between two individuals who share common interests. A mentor is a trusted adult friend with a long-term, consistent commitment to provide guidance and support to a college student. By engaging a mentor, a student should feel empowered to take greater responsibility for their lives, families, community, and college program.
What is my role?
As a mentor, you will provide access to people, places, and things outside the college student’s daily routine and environment. In addition, you will help your Mentee with professional development, academic
advancement, networking, skills development, and work-life balance, helping them meet the requirements of the Scholarship Program and achieve their academic goals.
