SSAS provides volunteer community mentors for each of its scholars. A mentor is an adult who, along with parents, teachers, coaches, counselors and other caring adults, provides an SSAS scholar with support, counsel, friendship and a constructive example. Students are required to meet with mentors at least once a month. Mentors go through a standard background check processed by Commercial Investigations, LLC.
