We are here to support your program.

12th Grade Phase 1

Preparing for Senior Year

Pairs will be re-acquainted with the program. They'll work collaboratively to re-engage and build excitement for the 12th grade. Pairs will revisit the mentee’s career interests and understand how these career interests can align with post-secondary pathways. At the end of this phase, pairs will understand what is expected of them this year, be reconnected, and be prepared to launch into the application process.
