Mentors

“The fundamental task of the mentor is a liberatory task. It is not to encourage the mentor’s goals and aspirations and dreams to be reproduced in the mentees, the students, but to give rise to the possibility that the students become the owners of their own history. This is how I understand the need that teachers have to transcend their merely instructive task and to assume the ethical posture of a mentor who truly believes in the total autonomy, freedom, and development of those he or she mentors.” - Paulo Freire , Mentoring the Mentor

Research has long shown that the presence of a caring adult makes a significant difference in the life of a young person.  Accordingly, each Fellow will be assigned a mentor who will stay with them for a minimum of one year. Ideally, the same mentor would be available to each student throughout the duration of their involvement in the FAF Program.

Mentors are recruited, selected and assigned before the first semester in College.

Among other things, mentors will be expected to:

  • Attend an initial mentor training session and ongoing training opportunities as needed
  • Participate in group mentoring during monthly Eat and Meets
  • Make weekly contact in person or by telephone, email, or other means
  • Be available on a reasonable basis to respond to any questions or requests made by their assigned Fellow

If you are interested in mentoring a Fellow, please contact the Program Coordinator.
