Mentor with SF Achieve This Summer and Fall

Mentor with SF Achieve This Summer and Fall

Two people shaking hands.

May 20, 2024 – The SF Achieve program, which is bridging achievement gaps and making college a reality for thousands of students, is looking for new mentors for hundreds of SF Achieve Scholars enrolling at SF in Summer and Fall 2024.

SF Achieve launched three years ago as a partnership between SF and public schools in Alachua and Bradford Counties. It focuses on improving the college-going culture in those counties by offering college coaching and a scholarship to remove financial burdens from in-district public high school students in need.

To help ensure their success once they enroll at the college, SF Achieve pairs these new students with a member of the SF faculty and staff who will serve as their mentor while they are enrolled at the college. The program needs at least 30 new mentors.

Mentors will be asked to check in with their assigned students each term and serve as a point of contact to help facilitate connecting those students to college resources. In most cases, mentorship takes no more than one hour per week on average. Training is provided through Canvas.

Only full-time employees will be considered as mentors. SF Human Resources has confirmed that this service to the college is considered compensable time and should be considered as part of the employee’s 40-hour work week.

If you’re interested in serving as a new mentor, please fill out this form: You will be contacted with more information, and your supervisor will be contacted to get his or her support.

For any additional questions, or if you are a current SF Achieve Mentor who feels you can mentor more students than already assigned, please contact Quinten Eyman, the Director of Recruitment and SF Achieve, at
