MRC Mentoring Program

Program Purpose

The Multicultural Resource Center is launching a new collaborative mentorship program with Binghamton High School beginning Fall 2013. Binghamton High School has a high proportion of students from minority and low socioeconomic backgrounds. Many of these students will be the first from their families to attend college. The critical leap from high school to college can be difficult for them since they might have never been exposed to the possibility of higher education. The MRC Mentoring Program is aimed to give these high school students, especially sophomore and junior, a taste of college lif and spark their interest in higher education by pairing them with BU students.

The Program's Objectives:

Provide Binghamton University students with an opportunity to gain practical experiences in mentoring by allowing students to enhance their leadership, management and coaching skills. Mentoring also offers BU students ongoing attention to their own career development and a direct means of giving back to local community.
Provide high school students in danger of dropping out of high school a meaningful experience in realizing the benefits and importance of a college education while working through and supporting them through their high school tenure.
Provide Binghamton High School students with role models, extra-academic, social, and personal support.
Mentors will:

Serve a total of 5 hours weekly in addition to a monthly activity to earn 2 credits each semester. This is a 4-credit year-long commitment in a mentoring course that meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:50-4:15 pm. Mentors meet with high school students each week on Tuesdays and meet with MRC Director on Thursdays
Serve as social and academic role models
Attend monthly mentor meetings with the MRC Director
Participate in Program events monthly either at Binghamton University or Binghamton High School
