RAMP Academic Mentors are paid $11.00/hr (as of Jan 1, 2018) and work up to 10 hours per week. Upon successful completion of Spring 2018 Mentor Education (which is paid time - up to 18 hours!), mentors are assigned a caseload of 2018-2019 first-time freshmen who are the first in their family, or one of the first (also known as "first-generation") with whom the mentors work and support during the first-year transition to HSU. Mentors are actively supported and guided by the RAMP Director and RAMP Coordinator, as well as three RAMP Academic Lead Mentors who worked as mentors the previous year.
