The Cardinal Nest mentoring
program matches 11th & 12th grade students with young
professionals for an academic year. Through these relationships and group activities, our mentors create an environment for friendship, support,
and fun. Mentors and mentees get together at least once per month. Both mentors
and mentees make a commitment to spend time together throughout the academic
year. The mentors are
not private tutors, although pairs may periodically decide to work on homework
together. We plan workshops and activities on a monthly basis that are open to
all high school students. Cardinal Nest staff members are also available to answer questions, offer support and help matches work through
challenges as they arise.
The purpose of this program is to give students an opportunity to have a one-on-one relationship with young professional mentors. Through these relationships, mentors provide friendship, support, and guidance. The mentors are there to serve as positive role models and confidants.
