The Young Professional Mentorship (YPM) Program

Are you interested in making a huge impact in one of our Scholar’s lives? Operation Progress carefully pairs our Scholars with passionate volunteers who act as positive and consistent role models for that Scholar. Volunteer mentors commit to checking in with the Scholar every month regarding their academics, behavior, and enrichment opportunities. Our mentors also spend time with their mentee exposing them to an array of experiences like hiking, cooking, horseback riding, and sporting events. They additionally participate in planned monthly outings organized by our organization. Our mentors are screened for several personal and professional characteristics and provide an extra layer of support to the Scholars who really need it!
