How can I find HBCU mentoring programs for high school students?

I'm a junior in high school right now and incredibly interested in mentorship opportunities that can help guide me through the end of high school and the college admissions process, preferably through an HBCU lens. Does anyone know of HBCU mentoring programs for students like me, and how I might get involved? Looking for some support and guidance. Thanks in advance!

Seeking a mentorship, particularly one with focus on the unique experiences and opportunities at HBCUs, is a commendable step toward your educational success. A great starting point is to check out the 'Pre-College Programs' or 'Outreach Programs' sections on the websites of HBCUs you're interested in. Many HBCUs offer summer programs, pre-college workshops, and year-round initiatives that include mentorship components for high school students.

Additionally, organizations like the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) often collaborate with HBCUs to provide mentoring services. Consider reaching out to nearby HBCU's admissions or student affairs offices – they can often connect you to alumni networks or current students who participate in mentorship activities.

Don't forget to check with your own high school's guidance counselors, as they might know of local mentoring partnerships with HBCUs in your area. Lastly, social media and professional networking platforms like LinkedIn can also be helpful resources to connect with HBCU students and alumni who can guide you.

Best of luck as you seek out these enriching experiences!
