This program is in the Urbana and Champaign schools. There are 9 city employees who are mentors.
The students who stay in the program and graduate from high school with their mentor receive a scholarship of $500.00 a semester for two years ($2,000.00 total).
Usually mentors start out with a 6th grader, however, if a person wants to start out with a different grade, grade school, high school etc. that can be arranged.
