Mentor Program

The Fulfillment Fund Mentor Program shapes the lives of hundreds of young people each year. Our team pairs positive adult role models with promising students from educationally and economically under-resourced communities. Then, mentors and students meet regularly and participate in a number of activities, ranging from Fulfillment Fund-sponsored events to museum visits to simply talking over lunch.

What Makes Us Unique?

  • One-on-One Support: Each student-mentor team is assigned a case manager to professionally support their relationship and who will check in once a month to see how things are going.
  • Access to College Counseling: As early as ninth grade, students, their parents and the mentor will meet with a Fulfillment Fund college counselor to create a college plan, review graduation requirements and ensure students are college eligible by the time they enter the 12th grade.
  • Workshops and College Visits: Every year, the Fulfillment Fund hosts numerous events to cultivate the college-going culture among our mentor students, including college visit trips throughout California.

While there are many opportunities to volunteer with our organization, mentoring provides a direct avenue to create a meaningful impact by making a nominal investment of time. Our Mentor Program provides the necessary structure for success in a mentor/mentee relationship; staff support, extensive training and amazing volunteers all play a role in our success.
