CCC Mentors

The CCC Mentor program pairs students with mentors, to help students decide what they want to do after high school. 

CCC Mentors assist students with post-secondary education planning, career choices, financial aid, college admissions, and scholarship applications. Students who work with their CCC Mentor become more knowledgeable about the steps needed to attend college, university, or training programs. This program is open to any and all students at Cleveland. By utilizing community volunteers as mentors, the College & Career Center extends the reach of the school's counseling services.

The Goals of the CCC Mentors are to:
  • Provide advising & resources to help students access education and training beyond high school
  • Educate students and families about the scholarship application process and other options for paying for post secondary education

STUDENTS: Want to work with a Cleveland mentor?

To participate in the Cleveland CCC Mentoring program, see your counselor or come by the CCC to pick up an application form that will need to be signed by your parent or guardian. You will be matched with a volunteer mentor with whom you will meet regularly in the CCC.
