Many young adults in our area have talent and motivation, but lack opportunity. Year Up enables young adults to move from minimum wage to meaningful careers in just one year. This works because people like you are willing to volunteer as academic advisors and mentors. Academic Advisors meet with a student weekly to work on professional development and communication skills. The commitment is 1 hr/week from April 4 - July 12, with weekly shifts on Tuesdays from 3:45-4:45 OR Wednesdays from 11:45-12:45. Orientation is 11:30-12:30 on April 4. Apply here by March 12. Mentors provide ongoing support to students from April through January. The commitment is 2-3 hours/month and orientation will be held in late April. Apply here by April 12. Please review Year Up’s Mentor Guidelines before applying.
