The Mentor2.0 program takes the matches in a specific direction – planning for the future. In this program, high school juniors from Cumberland County Technical Education Center (CCTEC) are enrolled and matched with mentors with a college degree or significant professional experience. The mentor helps the student prepare for college and supports them through their freshman year. They work through a specified curriculum. They communicate weekly through a secure virtual platform and attend a monthly in-person event during the school year. This proven technology-enriched mentoring program helps high school students graduate and succeed in college and the workforce.

The curriculum focuses on
college and career readiness

  • College knowledge

    Strengthens college aspirations, and builds an understanding of college eligibility, the application process, and support systems
