Mentoring at the Library
The Library is working in partnership with My Brother’s Keeper Alliance to offer high school students , ages 15 - 19, the opportunity to work with a committed corporate mentor once a week during the school year. Mentors help students understand your strengths and interests, write a resume, choose a college, apply for financial aid, and put their 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.
Additionally, mentees will attend workplace visits to partnering companies—organized by the program manager—that include guest speakers, career talks, and company tours.
