CollegeBound Urban Scholars Mentoring Program
The CollegeBound Urban Scholars Program provides scholarships of $10,000 annually to Baltimore City public school graduates attending Maryland independent colleges and universities. Scholars are connected to internships and develop interviewing, networking, and professional skills throughout their years in the program. Mentors play a vital role in the program, helping scholars understand the value of a college education and offering professional guidance.
Time commitment: The program is seeking mentors for the 2019-2020 academic year for a one-year minimum commitment. Mentors meet one-on-one with mentees during college breaks and touch base during the year through emails and phone calls.
To volunteer for the Urban Scholars Program, contact Lori Subotich at (410) 783-2905 x208 or email@example.com.
