How can I become a Her Honor mentee?

Mentees are selected through one of our participating Westchester County high schools. A committee within each school, composed of guidance counselors and school administrators nominates candidates for the mentoring program. Candidates must be responsible, motivated, mature, upcoming seniors and show leadership potential. Economic need is also a criteria. The application process begins in April of each year. Each candidate is required to submit an application, along with a personal essay, letter of recommendation from a teacher or school faculty member, and a copy of her transcript. Final selections are announced in early June.

If you are interested in joining Her Honor Mentoring program, please see your school guidance counselor, who will help you get involved. If your school is not currently participating in the program, see below.
