College Mentors play a key role in supporting interns throughout the program

College Mentors are present on both Professional Development days (Thursdays and Fridays). Under the guidance of the College Preparation Consultant, they work closely with the interns to support them with their college search and exploring the Common Application. In addition, College Mentors provide the one-to-one support in making sure their interns are completing work, responding to feedback, and building their portfolios. When not leading the facilitation of workshops, they are supporting these workshops and working closely with students in a variety of capacities.

“I feel like I really got a head start on everything I need to do for college. The internship opened me up to new people and friends. The panel brought new things I didn’t know to my mind. The field trips were so much fun and it brought me to a place I had never been.” -2018 BAI Intern
