The E-Mentoring Program
Student Quick Links
Mentors can help with your transition from high school to college and/or work.
What is a mentee?
A mentee in the E-Mentoring Program is a student like you who is starting to think about their future. Whether you plan to go to college or work, this program will help you.
In the E-Mentoring Program, you will work through an online course. It will assist you to build your academic skills and help you plan for the future.
You will be matched with a mentor who will be in contact with you through e-mail.
Who will be my mentor?
Mentors are caring adults who would like to help you think about your future. Mentors are role models. Mentors will hold high expectations of you as a student and will expect you to do your best. Mentors can be college students, local business people, teachers, etc.
Who is not my mentor?
Mentors are not like a parent. They will not meet with you or talk with you outside of planned program events. Mentors will not give or loan you money. Mentors will not always see things your way.

How does this work?
The program instructors will show you how to use a specific e-mail system that only lets you send and receive e-mails from people in the E-Mentoring Program. You will be given time to send and receive e-mails to and from your mentor. These e-mails are monitored by the program instructor to make sure things are going alright and the rules are being followed.
Try to use your best writing and language skills. Before you send an e-mail, check it for mistakes, and to make sure it says what you want it to say. Click here for more information on online etiquette, or "netiquette".
If you have a question or concern, talk to your program instructor.
Your family will need to sign a permission form for you to have a mentor. Then you will complete the student questionnaire.
Once the questionnaire is turned in, your program instructor will help match you with a mentor. After you are trained on how to use the e-mail system and the E-Mentoring Program rules, you can start e-mailing your mentor!
