A mentor can play an important role in students’ academic, professional, and personal success by providing guidance and support during their time as a student and beyond.
A mentor is someone that has more life experience that can help guide you and provide support as you try to actualize and reach your goals.
This program is a peer mentoring initiative meant to support you as you start your college career at CCNY. New students are paired with an experienced upperclassman who serves as a mentor and role model to help motivate them, focus on academics, and support them in achieving their goals.
Student Success Guides and mentees are expected to meet three (3) times per semester and get to participate in a variety of events and workshops. Mentee applications are currently accepted on a rolling basis.
This mentoring program is designed to introduce talented and motivated undergraduate freshmen and sophomores to the financial services industry, build early professional development skills and provide defined pathways to future opportunities.
Selected students will be paired with experienced professionals working in a variety of areas, including; Finance, Business Development, Marketing, Public Relations, Human Resources, and many more. Limited spots are available!
For questions about the program, please contact Cynthia Gutierrez at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is Monday, September 26, 2022.
Students who are the first in their family to attend college can face challenges that other students may not. Ciro Scala, a Colin Powell School alum, helped create a program that assists first generation students in finding the resources, support, and enrichment they need during their first year in college and beyond. We want students to achieve academic success and reach their full potential.
This series of empowerment workshops will help you navigate issues related to your finances, academics, careers, and more. We want you to build a network and community to support you at the Colin Powell School and beyond.
“Nearly 60 years after he reluctantly dropped out of City College under the stress of working full-time and commuting from Staten Island, Ciro Scala went back to school in 2016 and earned both an undergraduate and master’s degree from City’s Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership. Now he’s fulfilling his lifelong dream of becoming a teacher, and he is giving something back. To help first-generation college students navigate the same kinds of pitfalls he faced when he was a young student, he launched and leads a series of workshops to help them cope with challenges that can impede their success.”
