Mentors are our most important means of non-financial support. With nearly 100 mentors JA has the most robust student support mentor program in all of México.
Each Jóvenes Adelante student is assigned a mentor. Mentors are adults with their own university and/or life and work experience.
Noun: An experienced, trusted advisor or role model.
Verb: To advise or support someone, especially a young colleague.
Mentors meet with their student a minimum of once a month and prepare a brief report to Jóvenes Adelante on his or her situation, progress, and any particular challenges that the student may be facing.
