Berkeley Community Scholars bridges the opportunity divide for Berkeley youth living in the lowest income bracket by providing scholarships, college success advising, and community mentors. Our program allows our scholars to obtain a bachelor’s degree, social capital, and limited financial debt. We are currently recruiting mentors for our 2021 scholarship recipients.
Mentors are valuable resources to our scholars. They inspire and facilitate academic, career, and personal achievements. 80% of our scholars are the first generation attending college and desiring a professional career. Our mentors provide the roadmap and social capital for our students to visualize and plan for meeting their goals.
We ask our mentors to commit to at least 2 years as a mentor. Additional years of support will be encouraged based on mentor/mentee desire and impact.
*Any face-to-face or in-person events will be remote until public health protocols permit otherwise.
If you have questions, please contact our College Success Advisor, Linda Osuorji, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (510) 900-9541.
