Since 2003, East Bay College Fund has supported Oakland students to graduate from college at a rate of 80% which is 4x the national average for this demographic group.
East Bay College Fund is looking for mentors for our students! Visit their site to learn more and get involved.
We’ll be adding more volunteer opportunities soon. Stay tuned!
The goal of our mentoring program is to provide a sustained, community-based network of personal support, information and resources to East Bay College Fund Scholars and their families, to help each Scholar achieve a successful college experience and expand future opportunities.
Early August : Mentor/Scholar Summer Retreat (Saturday, August 5th)
Early January : Mentor/Scholar Winter Retreat (weekday evening)
Complete the Volunteer Interest Form here. Mentor interviews are held from September – April. Scholar match events begin in May with the official match before the end of the month. Mentors and scholars are required to attend several events in the summer before the student’s first semester in college. There events are intended to deepen the relationship between the mentor-scholar pair and familiarize both with East Bay College Fund.
