Leading Lights Mentoring Program

The Leading Lights Mentoring Program gives participating Cal Maritime cadets the opportunity to become active members of the Vallejo community and build valuable relationships by serving as academic mentors to teens in local public schools.  In addition, Leading Lights participants receive guidance in meeting their personal, academic, and career goals.  Cadets are awarded a small stipend each semester in exchange for completing assigned mentoring work and attending monthly group meetings/ trainings.  The Leading Lights program prides itself on including cadets who represent diverse backgrounds, majors, and life experiences.

For more information on Leading Lights, please contact Ms. Elaine Kociolek at ekociolek@csum.edu or (707) 654-1288.  Applications for the 2014-15 cohort will be available online in early September.
