Become a Mentor

Say Yes Syracuse works with community based organizations to match students with local professionals to help guide them along their path to academic achievement. Mentors serve as a resource for students by sharing knowledge and life experiences, career decisions and successes both past and present.

Mentors are asked to:
  • Assist students in their transition from high school to post-secondary education
  • Help scholars set goals and encourage achievement of those goals
  • Build a relationship with their mentee by planning and participating in activities
  • Provide advice, guidance, and support as needed
  • Serve as a positive role model
Qualities that we look for in our mentors include:
  • Good listening skills
  • Demonstrate patience and flexibility
  • Exhibit a strong commitment to the mentoring initiative (e.g., be dependable and consistently meet time commitments)
  • Be open to cultural differences
  • Display the ability to be encouraging and supportive
  • Adhere to all program policies and procedures
  • Be open to feedback
