Buffalo Prep Mentoring

Buffalo Prep staff would like to extend a special thank you to all the individuals that are making it possible to provide additional support to the students of the Buffalo Prep High School through this very important mentoring initiative. Current and future students will have the opportunity to learn from educated, experienced, and engaged individuals throughout Western New York that have a truly vested interest in seeing them succeed.  Without your support and contributions, the Buffalo Prep Mentoring Program would not be possible.

 

Participants commit to having contact four times a month for at least 18 months (in-person, phone, text, email, Skype, FaceTime, etc). Matches are made on similar interests, career aspirations, and preferences of both mentor and mentee participants.
