OUR MENTORING PROGRAM
Since 2015, the Al Hurvis/ADAMM Education Foundation has provided each scholar with a mentor. Our PEAK mentors are matched with peers from elementary, middle school, high school and incoming college freshmen to help them foster worthwhile relationships and serve as role models by helping them to develop leadership skills, and provide advice on decisions related to academics, community involvement, navigating college, and professional and career development.
Our peer-to-peer mentoring program was created to help our first-generation scholars stay in college, persevere in their academics and graduate. Our mentoring program combines an online platform and personal interaction to guide communication, engagement, and encouragement through face-to-face meetings, events, and sports workshops.
Mentoring can be a great source of motivation and opportunity. Talking with a mentor can help us to set and achieve your goals, provide encouragement, and help us find and seek out new opportunities.
Mentoring can help us learn how to better communicate, improve our self-esteem, and provide us with valuable feedback and improve our skills. Mentoring helps us to listen to and view constructive criticism as beneficial to personal growth. Through sharing our life experiences, we can navigate challenges and road blocks.
Mentoring helps us learn to take ownership and be more accountable. By working together, mentors help us to succeed and challenge us to find tasks and think outside of our comfort zones.
