First Generation College Scholars

First Generation Scholars is a program for high school seniors who will be the first generation in their families to attend college or who come from underserved communities. The program has two components that take place during the Fall and Spring semesters.

During the Fall semester we provide a one-on-one mentoring program to the students via assistance on the college essay. The aim is to get students excited for college and give them advice on what to expect. This component is aimed exclusively at Seniors. Each week, students will meet for 1.5 hours with Mount Sinai students. There will also be several activities throughout the year to foster the mentor-mentee relationship.

For the Spring semester we provide SAT tutoring classes along with mentorship. These classes are open to students at any grade level, but mostly composed of juniors.

If you are interested in helping the next generation of students, please consider joining us during either term!
