First Gen Success offers community for both our scholars and mentors through lasting and impactful relationships, built on the foundation of personal interactions. Our volunteers are a motivational powerhouse, always available to provide a listening ear and an encouraging word to the students they mentor.
Our dedicated volunteer mentors grow from their experiences with our scholars, enjoy the tangible satisfaction of seeing their students succeed, and gain a valuable resume asset and a network of like-minded professionals.
