A passion for student development defines a successful START Mentor you don't need to be a STEM major to influence the next generation of STEM. START equips every mentor with online or in-person accredited mentor training, certified level 1 through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) - a great addition to your resume or CV.

START pairs Mentors with a high school Junior or Senior in our START Apprentice Program. Together, Apprentice/Mentor pairs receive authentic lab and research experiences on campus and beyond, learning real-world practices and applications. Mentors give insight into the college experience, decision making, goal setting and available paths, while modeling academic resilience and success.
