Mentors play a crucial role in supporting 21st Century Scholars as they enter and continue post-secondary education. College can be a time of great opportunity for a scholar, but it can also be a time of extraordinary risk if a student becomes one of the seven in 10 scholars who don’t get a degree.
In an effort to help those who mentor students in the 21st Century Scholars Program better equip scholars for post-secondary education, the Indiana Youth Institute (IYI) and Public Education Foundation and SICAN is hosting a free workshop titled “Strengthening the Transition and Persistence of 21st Century Scholars in Post-secondary Environments” that will explore how to help scholars with study skills, time management, adjusting to campus life, financial literacy and accessing campus resources.
This interactive training will show how mentors can best support scholars as they transition to college. This training is designed for mentors whose scholars are high school seniors or already enrolled in college. Participants will leave the training ready to help their scholar navigate the changing world of post-secondary education and know more about graduation requirements for the 21st Century Scholars Scholarship.
The training will run from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at the Mulberry Center in the Welborn Room, 412 Mulberry St., Evansville, 47713. Attendees are requested to park and enter on the North side of the building.
The workshop is free, but reservations are required by noon on Friday, Nov. 8. To make a reservation, contact Tracey Williams via email at email@example.com or via phone at (812) 435-8443.
This training is funded by USA Funds.
