PBHA's Mission Mentor

Purpose Statement

Like the Mission Hill After-School Program, Mission Mentor works with youth from the Mission Main and Alice Taylor housing developments in Roxbury. While MHASP is an academic program that runs on Monday-Thursday, Mission Mentor is a long-term, ONE-ON-ONE mentoring program that transports mentors to the Mission Hill area on Friday afternoons. In response to community desires, the focus of Mission Mentor is changing! Our program has adopted a loosely structured curriculum that aims to demystify the college experience for mentees and guide mentees toward goal setting and goal achievement. In addition to planning activities inspired by their own interests and expertise, mentors and mentees will do college-experience related activities such as attending a college event/concert, participating in a community service project, researching an interest in a college library, and spending time on campus. Our hope is that with the encouragement and friendship of committed mentors, our mentees will approach their educations and futures with new confidence and optimism.
