What Does a MESA Advisor Do?

MESA Advisors at local K-12 high schools and middle schools provide MESA academic support to students and parents throughout the school year. MESA Advisors attend monthly MESA professional development workshops and summer trainings, and assist with annual college visits. MESA Advisors provide a critical role in providing and transmitting hands-on MESA curricula in their STEM field of instruction.
