KHEDF Mentorship Program

An effective mentor can provide a subtle form of accountability, but also serve as a coach, the beginning of a professional network and sometimes a friend. 

KHEDF believes maintaining a relationship beyond the  scholarship is key to a student's success.

Our focus in 2021 is to create a mentorship program for students to improve their chances of obtaining a degree.
Tom Borrego
KHEDF Board President
The Kansas Hispanic Education & Development Foundation (KHEDF) Mentorship Program is designed to match College undergraduates currently enrolled in post-secondary education with professionals who will be able to provide additional support, guidance, and mentoring to assist in developing personal, academic, and professional skills. 
The development of these skills will assist in completing post-secondary education and facilitate growth in future and current professional roles.

Additionally, the program would allow companies to identify critical Hispanic Talent for its professional pipeline, allowing recent graduates to pursue careers in Kansas and Local communities.
