Mohawk Capstone Mentoring Program

Each semester, Mohawk Trail Regional School (MTRS) high school seniors are required to complete a capstone project as a part of their graduation requirements and seek the guidance and mentorship ofthose within the community. Pairing students with experts in their field, a capstone mentor is a critical piece of the experience. But what isa “capstone project” and what does becoming a capstone mentor involve?

A capstone project, simply put, is a senior exhibition piece—work that is completed throughout the year which culminates in a final presentation, demonstration, and research paper. The program provides students with three pathways of exploration (career focused, service learning, and personal interest) and projects can take shape in many forms. Projects should challenge students to think critically and provide them with an opportunity to enhance their communication skills, collaboration, time management, etc.—skills which will prepare them for college or the workforce.

As a capsto ne mentor, you may be asked to participate in a variety of ways:

Hosting a student to job shadow or intern in your field

Serve on a capstone panel and provide feedback to stu dents
presenting their projects

Serve as a resource or allo w students to interview you

Your time commitment with the capstone mentoring program is up to you; You choose your level of involvement! Our program is flexible and we are grateful for any time you can donate. There are many pathways of involvement with our capstone mentoring program and we hope you will consider becoming a part of the process.
