True2U is a volunteer mentoring program that helps Cleveland Metropolitan School District eighth graders explore their true selves and prepare to make the most of high school as the first step on the path to college and career readiness.
As part of a small group advisory team, you will spend 9 Thursdays this school year helping students uncover their interests and strengths, set goals, and connect these goals to the educational opportunities offered by the 39 high schools in the CMSD portfolio, setting them on a path of success in college and/or their careers.
Completed applications will be reviewed by staff and a personal interview scheduled. Please note, decisions to accept applicants into the program will be determined by the above as well as participation in orientation and training sessions.
