Volunteer Mentors Needed for SF Achieve

Volunteer Mentors Needed for SF Achieve

October 26, 2021 – A new partnership program designed to bridge achievement gaps and make college a reality for thousands of students needs your help. 

Santa Fe College President Paul Broadie II announced SF Achieve at Convocation in August. The program is a partnership between SF, and public schools in Alachua and Bradford counties.  It focuses on improving the college-going culture in those counties, in part by offering a scholarship to remove financial burdens from high school students in-need. SF Achieve provides them the mentorship and coaching to keep them college-focused and college-ready.

As the program rolls out into public schools, the first group of SF Achieve Scholars are set to enroll at SF in the Fall of 2022.  To help ensure their success, SF Achieve will pair these new students with a member of the SF faculty and staff who will serve as their volunteer mentor while they are enrolled at the college.

Mentors will be asked to check-in with their assigned students each semester, and serve as a point of contact to help facilitate connecting those students to college resources.     

If you’re interested in serving as a mentor and learning more, please fill out this form.

Once you complete the form, you will be directed to a landing page where you can sign-up for one of the virtual Information sessions about the mentor program.  Those sessions will be held via Zoom on the following dates and times:

November 4 at noon

November 10 at 3 p.m.
