Mentor a Berkeley High School Student

Starting Blocks is a new education program that prepares Seniors in alternative high schools to achieve their personal and professional goals after graduation by teaching life skills, creating opportunities to practice and implement them in a meaningful way and expanding their networks of supportive and knowledgeable adults. We are currently recruiting mentors for our 2010 Program. Students and mentors meet once a month during the school day to work on life skills projects such as resume writing, interviewing, networking and budgeting.

Event Dates: Sept 2010-June 2011
Event Times: During the school day once a month for 2 hours (exact time TBD)
Location: Berkeley High School 1980 Allston Way | Berkeley, CA 94704 | 510-644-6121

Starting Blocks is a new education program that prepares Seniors in alternative high schools to achieve their personal and professional goals after graduation by teaching life skills, creating opportunities to practice and implement them in a meaningful way and expanding their networks of supportive and knowledgeable adults. The SRN is where our students get to use the skills they are working on in the real world and we want you to join this network! SRN members provide career advice to students in the form of informational interviews and/or resume reviews. They are also invited to make in class career presentations. The SRN also includes companies that provide job training/internship opportunities for high school students.
