Mentoring Program

The Scholars to Leaders mentoring program connects our scholarship recipients with Economic Club members, emerging leaders, and alumni for supportive guidance to ensure successful college completion. Since January 2018, over 30 alumni have participated in the program, providing mentorship and guidance to new scholars. Our Mentoring Program includes six elements: goal setting and planning, career exposure, leadership development, time management, encouragement, moral support, and guidance. Through group events, one-on-one meetings, text messaging, emails, and phone calls, mentors provide the scholars with consistent encouragement to complete college and achieve post-graduate success.

Mentors and mentees will be matched in a one-to-three format and encouraged to meet during formal Club facilitated sessions, as well as informal meetings in between. When possible, these will happen in person, however, we anticipate much of the communication happening via text, email, and Zoom as well.  Mentors and Mentees will be matched for the duration of the school year. Mid-program check-ins will be sent via the education team to mentors and mentees to see what is going well and what can be improved as we continue to grow our mentoring program.

Members and Scholars interested in joining the mentorship program please reach out to


The Mentor Monday series launched in 2020 to provide a virtual approach to group mentorship. Each month, members of the Scholars to Leaders community meet to discuss a variety of topics and provide scholars an opportunity to network with peers, members, alumni, and emerging leaders. Check out our previous Mentor Monday events on YouTube.​
