  41. 41. Why Mentor?<br />
  42. 42. what IS mentoring?<br />Mentoring brings young people together with caring individuals who offer guidance, support and encouragement aimed at developing the competence and character of the mentee. <br />A mentor is a person who provides a young person with support, counsel, and friendship.<br />
  43. 43. Why are mentors needed at San Jacinto College?<br />For every 100 AfricanAmerican males who start school here, only 8 of them finish.<br />Our main goal is to fix that statistic.<br />

  46. 46. What will I do as a Mentor?<br />
  47. 47. What will I do as a Mentor?<br />Mentors will serve as resources, assisting students with academic and personal development, while offering support and motivation. In a sense, the mentor serves as a “fan” for his or her mentee, cheering that student on towards the goal of graduation from San Jac.<br />
