Philadelphia Futures

Posted July 25th, 2014 at 1:44 pm.

The mission of Philadelphia Futures is to provide low-income and first generation college students with the necessary tools and resources to achieve success in college and beyond. Philadelphia Futures provides the opportunity for committed volunteers to pair with a high school student through their mentoring program. A mentor is expected to provide support for one young adult by exposing them to new social, cultural and educational experiences. The friendship and guidance that can be provided by a mentor is critical to student success. Mentors communicate regularly with their student and meet up at least once a month. Mentors are required by state law to undergo a child abuse clearance and as well as a criminal record check.
