Mentor - Imara Roose, Inc

Open Opportunity


All volunteers must successfully complete a background check in accordance with Prince George’s County Public Schools’ policy. Weekly meetings take place at Eleanor Roosevelt High School (ERHS) in Greenbelt MD, Mondays and/or Thursdays, 3:30 PM-4:45 PM. Additionally, mentors meet with their mentee one-on-one, and participate in a community service activity, once a month. Sister socials take place twice per semester. Volunteers are responsible for arranging their transportation to and from all meetings and events-carpool maybe available. As long as ERHS remains virtual, Imara Roose programming will follow suit-we’ll shift back to in-person once our mentees return to school.

During our weekly after-school meetings, mentors and mentees engage in candid conversation while participating in dynamic activities and workshops focused on a range of topics-from self-image and self-worth to mental and physical health and wellness.

Weekly after-school workshops focus on a range of critical topics-from time management, to the college application process, to financial literacy, to resume writing. Our career exploration series exposes mentees to a variety of career paths.

Our Bigs & Littles program affords one-on-one support and guidance within the larger group-each mentor ("big sister") is paired with a mentee ("little sister"). Bigs-Littles meet one-one-one or in small groups at least once a month.
