Mission

RGV Mentors matches successful community professionals with aspiring high school students to ensure all participants graduate high school with a college and/or career ready mindset.

Vision

RGV Mentors is a network of professionals created to help facilitate the success of high school students in the Rio Grande Valley through positive mentoring relationships.  Working primarily with academically successful students, the mentors will help the students identify and pursue goals that will lead the students to success in post-secondary education, in careers, and ultimately in life.  The RGV Mentors program will seek out students who would most benefit from mentoring relationships, especially first-generation college attendees and those in financial need.  Adult mentors will be carefully selected and will follow a curriculum designed to help guide and enhance their experience.  The resulting relationship may continue well beyond high school to ensure that mentees ultimately fulfill their ambitions and develop into citizens who will give back to their communities.  The hallmark of RGV Mentors will be its comprehensive, “life-coach” style of mentoring.  RGV Mentors plans to honor and celebrate its students at an annual gala which will also raise money for scholarships.
