The BRIDGES Minority Outreach Program Seeks UF Student Mentors

The Bridges Minority Outreach Program targets underrepresented minority students in the effort to assist them through the college application process and shape them into competitive applicants for the university of their choice. 

Our program has three overall goals: 1. Mentorship Development, 2. Resources & Curriculum and 3. Immersive College Experience. Students who are part of the program will be paired with students at UF who will act as their mentors. They will help lead their ‘mentee’ and encourage them through their college application process and with their future transition to college life. We will also be providing resources for the students that will guide them with taking their SAT, applying to college, finding scholarships, etc. Lastly, our program grants students access to an immersive college experience, with an opportunity to shadow a student at the University of Florida to gauge what being a student is like.

We are reaching out once again. We are currently looking for UF students to apply to become mentors for underrepresented minority high school students in Gainesville. I will attach the link to the application below, if you could share this with your students, that would be so helpful. Applications are due this Thursday (October 21st) @11:59pm.
