About Trey Mentors
Trey Mentors provide guidance and support as Trey Athletes prepare for and handle the demands of playing sports at the next level. Trey Mentors are selected through a competitive application process, and thoroughly trained to make a positive and impactful difference in the lives of Trey Athletes. From conversations concerning the pressures of being an elite athlete, to discussions on life after sport, Trey Mentors are there for Trey Athletes every step of the way.
Trey Mentor Community Events
Trey Mentor community events connect high school athletes and their families with former college and professional athletes. As elite athletes now successful in life beyond sport, our mentors serve as positive and realistic role models who impart the benefit of hindsight.
Trey Mentors grow in countless ways through their work with our Trey Athletes. Most importantly, Trey Mentors have a positive impact on youth, develop leadership skills, and join our professional network of high-achieving former college athletes – the first of its kind!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the time commitment to serve as a Trey Mentor?
Consistent communication and support is the foundation of effective mentoring relationships. Trey Mentors communicate with their Trey Athletes on a per need basis and attend Trey Mentor Community Events at least once a quarter; this results in a time commitment of approximately four to five hours per month. Trey Mentors commit to a one-year minimum of mentorship, although ideally the mentorship continues far beyond that.
What types of activities will Trey Mentors and Trey Athletes do together?
A Trey Mentor is a supportive adult who has the life experiences and knowledge to help Trey Athletes realize their leadership potential. Each Trey Mentor receives content to review with his or her Trey Athletes as well as a list of suggestions for activities to do together. Additionally, Trey hosts regular, exclusive group social events and outings, to which all Trey Athletes and Trey Mentors are invited.
How do Trey Athletes become a part of the program?
Trey Athletes are nominated or apply to be part of our program. Each Trey Athlete is a high-potential competitor intent on becoming a lifelong leader through sport as well as a young, developing high schooler who is excited about working with Trey Mentors to help him or her along the way.
What is the cost to be a Trey Mentor?
Zero! There is no charge for Trey Athletes or Trey Mentors to be part of our program. We invite Trey Mentors to help cover part or all of the cost of their background checks, as this allows us to focus our donations on helping more Trey Athletes.
Trey Mentors may individually choose to spend money on activities with Trey Athletes. However, we encourage no-cost or low-cost excursions. Additionally, Trey hosts regular, exclusive group social events and outings, to which all Trey Athletes and Trey Mentors are invited.
What support is provided to Trey Mentors?
Before working with our Trey Athletes, Trey Mentors must complete a pre-match orientation session. This training lays the ground rules and instills a familiarity with our program, enabling our Trey Mentors to be most effective. Once a Trey Mentor has completed training, he or she is assigned a Trey Advisor, who will be in regular contact to empower, update, and counsel. Even a mentor needs guidance.
