With Project One, there are many opportunities to get involved! We believe it takes the whole community getting involved in order to make our mission successful and to help deserving students graduate college and break the cycle of poverty in their lives. There are so many opportunities for you to get involved and make a difference.
- Mentoring – you can volunteer your time supporting our scholars in a mentoring relationship. Mentoring relationships are part of the ‘surround sound’ support we provide our students in order to increase the likelihood of a successful, enriching college experience. Mentoring pairs will meet monthly (via phone or e-mail) and the relationship lasts one school year during their college career.
- Interview Panel – the interview panel is an ideal way to meet a number of incredible high school seniors. The panel spends several hours on one Saturday in late-Spring interviewing applicants for our scholarship program. As part of our effort to be good stewards of the donations entrusted with us, we encourage feedback and input from interested parties, outside of our Board of Directors, to help narrow the pool of potential candidates.
- Program Leader – as a Program Leader you can lead one of our Financial Literacy training courses or assist with our Gifts and Talents Discovery program. If you have limited availability, volunteering as a Program Leader is a great way to get involved without a large time commitment. All materials are provided.
