Our mentors are recruited from many different places in the community. We have college students, parents, doctors, policemen, firemen, city employees, school district employees (not teachers), business owners, retirees, and many, many more!
Every RISE Mentor must complete an application where they provide 2 references. They also have to complete a criminal background check and attend a 3 hour training with the District Mentor Specialist. Only after all three of these things have been completed, will they be matched with a student.
