Studies show that mentoring students by providing information, guidance, and encouragement helps nurture their college aspirations and prepare them for the transition to college. The goal of the Nevada Promise mentoring component is to empower youth to thrive regardless of life transitions. Mentors can support Nevada Promise Scholarship applicants by:
- Encouraging high school graduation.
- Promoting academic excellence.
- Listening to college and career aspirations or life goals, and connecting mentees with the appropriate college resources.
