Program Description

We pair our Scholars with a trained adult mentor in the January of their senior year of high school. Mentors are a crucial part of the support system the Palmer Scholars family offers, and they are vital to each Scholar's success. We are actively looking for community leaders who would like to volunteer as a Mentor for one of our Scholars.

A committed group of over 200 volunteers provide support as mentors, counselors, office assistants, application readers, job shadowing, internships, and event coordinators.
