MexEdNYC – the Mexican Educational Foundation of New York - is looking for mentors to work with Mexican youth in NYC.
Volunteer Opportunity to Mentor Mexican High School Students
MexEd is a non-profit organization that promotes educational attainment and community leadership among Mexican immigrants and their children. Currently, our primary means of achieving this mission is an after-school enrichment program based at Washington Irving High School, located near Union Square. In addition, program participants are matched with a caring, dedicated mentor who serves as an advocate and role model to their “mentee.” For more information about our programs, check out the About Us page.
A mentor can provide his/her mentee with:
* Academic support
* A positive role model
* A stable relationship with a compassionate adult
If you’d like to become a mentor for MexEd, please visit http://mexednyc.org/volunteer.cfm, fill out the application, and send it to Stephen Ruszczyk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
