Become a Mentor and Change a Life!

The Promise Program requires student applicants to fulfill a series of requirements before becoming eligible to receive the scholarship. We are looking for mentors!

To register as a Mentor, please use the calendar to the right, select the day in which you would like to mentor, and select the "Registrer" with within that day's content.

Mentoring has been proven to help students succeed and to positively impact our community. By dedicating a few hours of talent and time, mentors guide students as they transition from high school into college. This is especially important for first-generation students. With the right guidance and support, mentors work with staff and faculty to ensure students successfully achieve their personal and educational goals while at CSN and beyond.

We have resources to help you mentor students effectively. There is a team of people behind you to support our students! If you are representing a company or organization looking to set up a mentor program, please email Guy Amato for more information.

ELIGIBILITY

The Nevada Promise bill requires mentors to: 

  1. Be at least 21 years of age
  2. Not be compensated for their mentoring services
  3. Before serving as a mentor, the applicant must pass a criminal background check

BECOME A COMMUNITY PARTNER

The Promise Program provides a wonderful opportunity for students to create lasting connections with our community and to give back through service. As part of the eligibility requirements, students need to complete and report 20 hours of community service by April 30, 2018. The service requirements begins when they are in high school and continues through college. We are looking for additional partners to provide community service opportunities for our students.
