Student Tracker

During a student's first meeting with an ASPIRE mentor they will complete a Student Tracker. This is the primary document for monitoring a student's progress throughout their time in the program. The tracker allows any mentor working with any student to quickly understand what a student has done so far and how they can help, without wasting time.

Recommended action items for college/career preparation are listed and can be done in any order, depending on the individual needs of the student. On the reverse side of the sheet, make brief notes after each session for yourself and other mentors (meeting date, volunteer hours, topics discussed).

Calendar and Checklists

The Career and College Calendar and Checklists has important deadlines and activities students should be focusing on each month, especially for juniors and seniors. Volunteers should compare the activities in the Volunteer Calendar and the Student Tracker to ensure that students are accessing all opportunities. Contact your site's Access Specialist to order additional physical copies.
