This Fellow will create a strategy and systems for building relationships among area employers and others to establish sustainable pathways for recruiting College Promise mentors for rising high school freshmen. Mentors meet weekly during the school year with College Promise Scholars, who receive significant scholarships upon high school graduation and successful completion of the program. The Fellow will help to identify ongoing sources of mentors, through engaging with community, business and higher education organizations such as SOCHE, Learn to Earn Dayton, the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce, and alumni chapters of Black sorority and fraternities.
