College Mentor Program
Becoming a College Mentor Program (CMP) mentor allows you to become a part of a broad network of formal and informal caring adults that includes counselors and teachers. A 2015 study by America’s Promise Alliance found that students with multiple social supports are more likely to re-engage with school in the face of adversity. The New York-based non-profit, The Future Project, has “documented the power that mentors can have at a defining juncture in the lives of disadvantaged youth: high school.”
The CMP was designed to not only meet the needs of a unique segment of Wenatchee High School’s student body but to also tap into the strengths of our community. The Wenatchee Valley has a wonderful tradition of community service that continues with the College Mentor Program. If you are looking for a rewarding opportunity to help some of our best scholars achieve their college-going dream or YOU are a scholar looking for someone to help you do just that, contact the College Mentor Program Coordinator, Angela Prater, at 509-663-8117 or via email.
