Mentors Empowering and Nurturing Through Education at UCLA
MENTE is a student-led mentor-ship organization geared towards promoting a college-going culture for high school students. We provide individualized mentoring, workshops, and college fairs designed to help students apply to college and financial aid. Services are open to all students including ESL, undocumented folk, low income students. MENTE empowers students to develop a social and political awareness of current events affecting their application to systems of higher education. We combat the school to prison pipeline and critical deficit theory affecting first generation students of color, providing a holistic college experience allowing students to see firsthand how their experiences can empower them to pursue a higher education. We nurture and prepare students post-high school, increasing the number of student enrollment and graduation from a post-secondary institution of their choice.
