Future Legacies scholars are paired with junior mentors. Junior mentors are Concept graduates who are current college students or have graduated with a degree. These junior mentors play a pivotal role in a scholar’s life by providing advice about college and careers. To receive participation hours, scholars will be required to meet with their junior mentor four times over video conference on the My Future portal.
Each junior mentor meeting will count as one hour of program participation. Click here for junior mentor meeting instructions on the portal.
Scholars must attend at least two college and career workshops which are offered online. Students must complete the workshop feedback survey for each workshop to get credit for attending.
Each workshop with the completed feedback survey counts as one full hour of program participation.
Scholars attend two quick online minute meetings with the Program Officer to evaluate scholar’s program participation, answer any questions, and encourage participation.
Both meetings counts as one full hour of program participation.
