Become a Mentor and Change a Life!

Thank you for your interest in Mentoring at the College of Southern Nevada.  Please complete the Mentor Application if you are:

  1. Applying to be a mentor for the first time
  2. A Returning Nevada Promise Scholarship Mentor (you applied last year and completed training and the background check)

CSN created the Mentoring Program to provide:

  1. Group Mentoring opportunities for High school students who are applying for the Nevada Promise Scholarship (Tier I)
  2. One-on-one mentoring for CSN students who are Nevada Promise Scholarship recipients renewing their eligibility for another year (Tier II)

See below for a complete explanation of the Mentoring Tiers and requirements.

All Mentors have the opportunity to participate in one or more of the Mentor Levels.

MENTOR ELIGIBILITY

The Nevada Promise bill requires mentors to: 

  1. Be at least 21 years of age
  2. Perform their mentoring services without compensation
  3. Successfully complete a criminal background check before serving as a mentor
  4. Refrain from working with a mentee they employ or who is closely related to them (within the third degree)
    • Please note that the Nevada Promise Law and the Nevada System of Higher Education require all mentors to undergo a background check. You will be asked to provide authorization for an electronic background check conducted by a third party on behalf of CSN. The cost of the background check will be covered by CSN. Returning Promise Mentors who completed a background check in 2018 do not need to complete a new background check.

If you have questions or would like to discuss how your organization can participate as a community partner, please contact Hillary Butrico, CSN’s Coordinator of Targeted Engagement and Enrollment, for more information or call 702-651-7500.
