FAQ

I would like my child to learn about this process earlier on, preferably before the start of high school. Is this program available to middle school students?

Since this mentorship is aimed at college preparation, this program will only be available to high school students, preferably juniors and seniors. However, there are many resources under the Education tab that explain the key components of college admission - which the student should keep in mind when starting their freshman year of high school.

If I enroll my child in this mentorship program, does that mean there is a high chance they will get into their dream school?

This mentorship program cannot promise a particular score or acceptance. We aim to provide a guide for your child as she or he goes through high school and prepares for college.

Do I have to pay for my child to enroll in this mentorship program?

Because Uyghur Youth Organization is a non-profit organization, we will not be charging students to have mentors. We hope this program will serve as a way for young professionals to serve their fellow Uyghur community. However, we are volunteer-run so please contribute by donating as much as you can so this program can remain and grow!

What is the time commitment for both the mentor and protege?

This will be determined by both the mentor and protege, depending on their schedules, academic interests, personal goals, and deadlines. UYO’s recommended time commitment would be around 1-2 hours a week.

Is this mentorship program exclusive to Uyghurs?

 

Because this organization is aimed to empower the Uyghur diaspora, priority will be given to Uyghur applicants. However, if there is a strong desire for a non-Uyghur to have a mentor, UYO will still consider the applicant.

Will mentors get paid?

 

Because Uyghur Youth Organization is a non-profit organization, we will not be paying the mentors.    

Our mentors are deeply driven Uyghurs who are passionate about helping Uyghur youths through the difficult college application process and share their wisdom and experiences.
