Mentoring at the Library
Do you need guidance getting ready for college or deciding which college is right for you? Ever wondered what it’s like to experience a day in the life of a corporate executive?
If you’re ages 15–19 and want to work with a mentor to tackle your college and career goals, check out the Library’s new mentorship program this fall.
The Library is working in partnership with My Brother’s Keeper Alliance to offer high school students the opportunity to work with a committed corporate mentor once a week during the school year.
A mentor can help you understand your strengths and interests, write a resume, choose a college, apply for financial aid, and put your best foot forward in a job interview.
Mentoring happens once a month. College and career workshops and visits to companies happen once a week and takes place at Mott Haven Library and 96th Street Library, from 5–7 PM. Free pizza is provided at each session. You can join us us this January!
Ready to connect with a mentor and join us this fall? Great! Reach out to our Program Manager, Briyyah McClain, with your name, school, grade, and your preferred day and library branch by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: (212)930-0053
