Mentees and Mentors Overview


Our Mentees are high school students ranging in age from 13-17 years old. Mentees are from the Orange County, California area (predominately from the cities of Westminster, Garden Grove and Santa Ana). Mentees participate in weekly study halls, monthly community activities, and our annual summer camp, and meet regularly with their Mentor.


Our Mentors are highly motivated young professionals, college graduates, and/or current college students with a special interest in empowering Vietnamese-American youth. Mentors guide their Mentee toward academic success and encourage them to become active members of their community. In addition to keeping in touch with their Mentee, Mentors attend the annual summer camp, weekly study halls, and monthly activities. Mentors also assist Project MotiVATe’s core staff to plan programs and activities.
