Mentor a Latino Student - Help a Student Graduate and Go to College!


The Te Guio Mentoring Program matches male mentors with at-risk Latino males in DC Public Schools to help the student stay on track for high school graduation and guide them through the college application process.  Te Guio, “I guide you” in Spanish, provides an invaluable 1-on-1 mentor relationship for an underserved student population.  Mentors will meet with their student at an after-school program, where they will check-in on the general well-being of their student, as well as their school attendance and school work, and work through an online college prep curriculum together.  The Te Guio Mentoring Program takes places at 5 different DCPS sites throughout the school year.  As a mentor, you will go to one of the five DCPS sites once per week to meet with your student for 1.5 hours between the hours of 3:30pm-5:30pm.  You can be the support a student needs to believe they can be successful in school and life.
