Junior Mentor Meetings

Future Legacies scholars are paired with junior mentors. Junior mentors are Concept graduates who are current college students or have already 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 three times over phone call, video call, or in person (if possible) and complete the Mentor Meeting Log (with proof of meeting).

Students must complete each mentor meeting by the following dates:

  • 1st meeting: between time of pairing & December 31st 
  • 2nd meeting: between January 1st & February 28th 
  • 3rd meeting: between March 1st & May 6th 

Each junior mentor meeting with its completed and approved log will count as one credit of program participation.

College & Career Workshops

Scholars must attend at least two college and career workshops which are offered online. There will be at least one workshop scheduled each month. 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 credit of program participation.

Progress Meetings

Scholars attend two quick online minute meetings with the Program Officer to evaluate scholar’s program participation, answer any questions, and encourage participation.

Each meeting counts as one credit of program participation.
