21st Century Scholars alumni are the greatest asset to young Scholars! As current Scholars work towards college and career success, nothing is more powerful than being able to connect with alumni who also earned the 21st Century Scholarship and went on to successfully complete college. You may even work in the Scholar’s chosen career field or live in their community! By participating in a mentoring program or ScholarCorps, you can help make sure Scholars succeed in their college and career goals—just like you.

MENTORING

You may want to participate in a mentoring program. A mentor is an adult who agrees to spend time with a specific student for a set period of time. Scholars alumni have the unique opportunity to help others walk the same path to career success.

Most communities have a mentoring initiative. See below for organizations that specifically partner with 21st Century Scholars, or visit the Indiana Mentoring Partnership to find another program in your area. Be sure to ask if you can be paired with a 21st Century Scholar.
