BAI College Mentors play a key role in supporting interns throughout the program

College Mentors play a key role in supporting interns throughout the program. The College Mentors are present on both Professional Development days (Thursdays and Fridays). Under the guidance of the College Preparation Consultant, they work closely with the interns to support them with their college search and exploring the Common Application. In addition, College Mentors provide one-to-one support in making sure their interns are completing work, responding to feedback, and building their portfolios. Mentors facilitate weekly check-ins with their small group of 6-8 interns. When not leading the facilitation of workshops, they are supporting these workshops and working closely with students in a variety of capacities. In partnership with Writing Coaches, College Mentors will also facilitate small group Book Clubs around texts that interns self-select.

“This internship is beautiful. The people working here truly care about bettering the next generation and making us confident in our futures and ourselves. It’s not something you experience often as a teen but for that exact reason it’s something that will be cherished forever.” -Barri Senae Moore, BAI 2020 Cohort
