Hey Mentor is a free online college and career mentorship program. High school students who signed up with our program are matched with a college mentor based on both career interests and personal background. Mentors help students with college applications, academic planning, personal statements, scholarship essays, financial aid, and many other questions.
Mentors are current college students or recent college graduates.
Mentees are 11th and 12th grade high school students.
How it works
Mentors provide college and career guidance for students online through Facebook, Zoom, text/call, email, or other messaging platforms. For students located near the greater Seattle area, mentors may also meet with students for in-person support at a public space such as a library, coffee shop, or school.
Spring application: May 1 - Jun 1

Students who have submitted an application should expect to receive a follow-up email with next steps, and a friend request on Facebook from their mentor within two weeks after the end of the application cycle.
