Ready to Achieve Mentoring Program

Career Focused Mentoring for Youth

Ready to Achieve Mentoring Program (RAMP)

The Ready to Achieve Mentoring Program (RAMP) is a high-tech, career-focused mentoring program for youth involved with or at risk of becoming involved with the juvenile justice system. The RAMP model uses a combination of group, peer, and individualized mentoring to promote the successful transition of all youth, including those with disabilities, to employment, continued learning opportunities, and independent living.

How it Works

The Ready to Achieve Mentoring Program builds on existing efforts by schools and employers and taps into the experience of its mentors to help students find viable paths for their future. Each youth meets regularly one-on-one with a mentor to develop and implement an Individualized Mentoring Plan (IMP).

  • assess and explore their own career interests;
  • develop a plan and set goals for their transition
  • create a resource map of their community’s high-tech industries
  • gain workplace soft skills
  • build resume-writing and interviewing skills
  • interact with employers and experience a variety of work settings
  • give and receive peer support
  • take advantage of group and personal leadership opportunities
  • design and build a high-tech-related team project
  • and most importantly… have fun!
