Make A Difference, Be A Mentor


How do we help these students believe in themselves? How do we help them be their best and shift their generational path towards success? With your help. This is how:

Be A Mentor
Core mentors can potentially change the trajectory of a Scholar’s life. We seek mentors who lead by example – as role models who exemplify approachability, accountability, positivity, guidance, honesty, responsibility, respect, ownership, strong work ethic, objectivity, fairness, compassion and genuineness. We hold our mentors in the highest regard and with the greatest respect. These student-mentor relationships, which set us apart from other organizations, are an essential cog in Core’s wheel.

INDIVIDUAL MENTORS work with a single Scholar, one-on-one, to build trust and mutual investment in each other. Individual mentors commit for a minimum of two years, meeting twice monthly, at a minimum. Mentors work to build academic accountability, character development and life-building skills with their Scholar – skills important to their long-term, ongoing success.

GROUP MENTORS guide a larger number of Scholars to set specific goals, define steps to achieve those objectives, and guide the Scholars in making good decisions.

PROJECT-BASED MENTORING, is one of the most impactful services we provide to our Scholars. This internship program redefines what it means to be a true community partner. A fabulous example is Core’s partnership with Las Vegas Chef and Restauranteur, Natalie Young, and the creation and fantastically successful, Chow To The Core program. As participating Scholars progress through the ranks learning every facet of the restaurant business under Chef Natalie’s guidance, they will undoubtedly garner social support and skills training that can catapult them to greater professional success once they finish school.
