Created in 2007 as part of the AmeriCorps VISTA Project, HEROS is a mentoring partnership between SUNY Geneseo and Livingston County High Schools. Trained HEROS mentors work one-on-one each week with students that have been selected by his or her guidance counselor. Acting as a positive role model and lending support, as well as a listening ear, the mentor is the middle ground between an authoritative figure and a friend. Ultimately, the goal of the program is to encourage high school students to go to college (either a 2 year or 4 year program). Through the establishment of a positive mentor-mentee relationship, the hope is to end the cycle of poverty with a focus on education.
A HERO is a mentor:
As a HEROS mentor, one is expected to complete a training workshop through GOLD entitled "Keys to Effective Mentoring", to show up each week for one hour to meet with mentee, and to be an empathetic and non-judgmental supporter of a high school student.
