All Vikings Aboard (AVA) Program Mentor
All Vikings Aboard (AVA) is an 8-month program designed to target students at North High School to combat Summer Melt, the phenomenon where capable and willing seniors who have applied and been accepted to college do not show up to their first day of school despite their intentions to do so. In 2012, only 39% of North High graduates ended up enrolling in college that year.
These mentors should be undergraduate students who want to help the AVA program achieve its goals of connecting the current seniors with upperclassmen, other peers and the institution they will be attending. During the AVA program, the mentor will lead a group of approximately 5-6 mentees, by helping them start the transition to college during the summer and throughout their first semester of college. The mentor relationship begins during the last few months of spring, during the mentees as a senior in high school, and ends at the conclusion of the fall semester. During these 8 months the mentor will work to ease the transition so that the mentees may succeed academically, personally, and socially. Upon successful completion of the program (attend all trainings and meetings with mentees), mentors will receive a $500 stipend for their time. Click here to download the application.
