Mentors needed for 2018-19 "Be Great" scholars
Cincinnati State's "Be Great" program invites College employees to serve as mentors to new students who have entered the College as "Be Great" scholars.
The "Be Great" program is a partnership that includes Cincinnati State, Cincinnati Public Schools, and the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative (CYC). If you’re not familiar with the partnership, you can learn more in Cincinnati State Daily News for April 19, 2017.
Students entering Cincinnati State with help from a “Be Great” grant receive financial support and other assistance, like mentoring.
The program goal is to match each new student with a volunteer mentor who will help the student succeed in their college experience.
New mentors must attend a training session (on Tuesday, Sep. 18, either from 4 to 5:30 p.m. or from 6 to 7:30 p.m.).
Mentors also are expected to attend a kick-off “meet and greet” for mentors and mentees on Thursday, Oct. 2, from 5 to 6:30 p.m.
Ongoing mentor responsibilities include:
- Mentor 1 or 2 students during the semester.
- Stay in touch with your mentee, spending about 2 hours per month (or more) in person and/or through other forms of contact such as text messaging, email, or phone calls.
- Help your mentee with activities such as forming new relationships and building networks, setting and achieving goals, learning about Cincinnati State resources and CYC resources, and more.
- Take advantage of, and encourage your mentee to use, ongoing support that will be facilitated by the College Mentor Coordinator, Molly Burkhalter. Molly is a CYC staff member who is working part-time at Cincinnati State.
- Attend group celebration events that will occur periodically.
