OC United Ways eMentorship Program was a six month program where OC high school students were paired up with local professionals to provide mentorship, guidance, and social emotional support.
During this program, strong connections were made with mentors and mentees. One of our mentors, Darian from KPMG, did an amazing act of kindness by donating two $500 scholarships. Students were able to apply for the scholarship through a video contest where they expressed how the eMentorship positively impacted them. After an extensive review of video submissions, one student from the Santa Ana Unified High School District & another from Anaheim Union High School District were awarded the scholarship. The happy winners Tiara & Celesta, were presented the scholarship during the eMentorship Laptop Distribution Celebration where 285 mentees were celebrated by receiving a certificate of completion and their very own laptop.— Vianney, Irvine.
