A LITTLE GUIDANCE CAN HELP YOU
MAXIMIZE YOUR POTENTIAL
Spurred by the need for college advice and reflecting upon their own experiences as high school students, the co-founders of Aristotle’s Mentorship sought to help talented, under-resourced high school students and undergraduates (BIPOC, first-generation, LGBTQIA+, and a special emphasis on low income) reach their dreams. Aristotle's Mentorship is a free, volunteer-based mentorship platform through which vulnerable young adults can communicate and learn from experienced college students. We provide our insight on navigating college life, getting the most out of one’s high school and collegial experience, as well as setting goals for their future careers. In doing so, we hope to provide as many resources and opportunities to our mentees, so that they can achieve their goals.
Who Are our mentors?
We aim to provide world-class mentorship to our students. Our organization is fortunate to recruit amazing mentors. They have founded successful nonprofits and startups in Los Angeles and Silicon Valley, created partnerships with major corporations, conducted research at prestigious institutions, worked at Big Four companies (tech, accounting, and investment banking), studied at top teaching hospitals, and received mentorship from renowned professionals in their fields.
With our vast experience, we want to impact the next generation of scholars and give a helping hand to those who are under-resourced. Sometimes, life provides obstacles that prevent people from achieving their potential. We’re here to change that.
We want to make a difference
We are dedicated to solving the most pressing issues that under-resourced students and communities face.
Recognizing the unique obstacles that our mentees faced, we've expanded our projects to include advice and guidance from politicians and higher education scholars, ranging from medical and law students, distinguished professors, and university deans from amazing universities across the U.S.
Since 2020, all high school mentees of our graduating classes will be attending a four-year university, along with acceptances to Ivy League universities, UCLA, UC Berkeley, USC, and others. They have also received over $3 million in financial aid and scholarships throughout their four years. Currently, we're working with key community leaders and organizations to provide a more impactful mentorship service.
This is just the beginning.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does your mentorship have any costs?
What is the time commitment?
Is there a GPA requirement for mentees?
How do you recruit your mentors?
My mentor and I just don’t click. What's next?
To ensure mentorship relationships are going smoothly, we also have managers dedicated to resolving any issues or concerns. If intervention of our manager and executive board doesn’t work, then we can assign different mentors and mentees -- if possible.
I really want to be connected with a mentor who goes to my dream college. Can I be matched with them?
We will try our best to match you to your preferences. However, we want to provide high-quality mentorship; therefore, we prioritize the mentor’s past experiences, accomplishments, and obstacles that they have overcome over the name or ranking of their institution. Overall, we do want our mentees to attend prestigious universities, but we also want them to do very well in college and in their prospective careers.
