Mentorships

Program Overview

Diamond Tech students are matched with a business mentor during their sophomore and junior years. Our mentoring programs provide opportunities for adults to make a visible difference in the lives of students — to share their interests and hard-won wisdom.  Our mentors are caring professionals who can listen, act as role models, provide career information, offer academic assistance, and suggest direction.  If you are a community partner who believes that education and student guidance are foundational to our society’s future, please read on and volunteer to join our program. Become a Mentor today!
