In general, it would be a good idea to sign up with your mentee to be notified of awards, be aware of scholarship scams!

Once your mentee is in Middle School, it'd be a good idea to utilize this website: Know How 2 Go. They can sign up for a newsletter to learn about tips and steps to take to go to college. You can learn, as a mentor, how to help prepare them for college, and there are specific areas designed to help middle school, freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and senior students take the right steps.
