We look to hire a full spectrum of Mentors. Some attend four-year colleges, community colleges and some are focused on their careers.
The C.A.R.E. acronym guides our mentors:
C - Focus on your Career
A - Have an Apprentice attitude
R - Be Reliable
E - Show Empathy for the youth you are mentoring
"To begin with, M.U.S.T. has provided me with life lessons through my mentoring experience. The program has given me a family that I can connect with and build a long lasting relationship with. The frequent outings make it fun to connect with the guys and catch up with them. Meetings with the Area Director also give me a support system that I can rely on at any point in time.
The mentoring program has taught me that being a man is all about being responsible. I have developed a better sense of accountability through this program. Working with other mentors has shaped my ability to work in a team with others towards the same goal. It has also provided me with an opportunity to be an advocate for my guys whenever needed."
"M.U.S.T. has done many things in helping me along the path to changing the world. One of which is M.U.S.T. helped connect me to a math tutor that was instrumental in me advancing into the math needed for my computer science major. I have also been fortunate enough to have been connected to a person that helps me pay for unforeseen school expenses which gives me the ability to focus on classes. Most importantly they provided me with a job that allows me to give back to the community, while supporting me through college with a car and the mentality that school is a top priority and most jobs don’t have this level of support.
I would like to say that M.U.S.T. pairing with a coach that works in my planned field of study that looks like me gives me so much hope in terms of my future in the tech industry. I know that when I graduate and move forward in life that I will also get to be the motivation for the community."
"A few specific things that M.U.S.T. has done for me is to be around a group of brothers and feel connected. Another thing would be that though I mentor and guide the students into a different path and frame of mind, I just as equal learn from the students. They teach about life, about brotherhood, and how to be a better man in leadership.
This program has taught me about the impact of someone coming along side of an individual and being a positive role model for them. The program has shown me that I want to someday own a company and make an impact in my community back at home like M.U.S.T. does in Seattle. M.U.S.T. is changing the students lives but also the city of Seattle."
