Imara Roose mentors are young women of color, age 18-30,
who are currently pursuing or have earned an undergraduate degree.
These individuals are passionate about empowering, uplifting, and transforming
the lives of high school girls through mentorship.
All mentors must complete the fingerprinting process in accordance with
Prince George’s County Public Schools’ policy—
in person at one of their designated locations in Upper Marlboro.
Weekly meetings take place at Eleanor Roosevelt High School (ERHS)
in Greenbelt MD, Mondays and/or Thursdays, 3:30PM-4:45PM.
Additionally, mentors meet with their mentee one-on-one,
and participate in a community service activity, once a month.
Sister socials take place twice per semester.
Volunteers are responsible for arranging their transportation
to and from all meetings and events—carpool may be available.
As long as ERHS remains virtual, Imara Roose programming will follow suit—
we’ll shift back to in-person once our mentees return to school.
