The purpose of the FreshMentor program is to provide upperclassman students a unique leadership and mentoring opportunity. FreshMentors are trained to help our freshmen transition to high school with a primary focus on helping them understand their new roles and responsibilities as a student. Likewise, they will offer support and connect students to resources to help them succeed at Hoffman Estates High School.
