Twentieth-Anniversary Campaign Pillars

For more than 20 years, College Mentors for Kids has been building hope, empowering mentors and changing lives for thousands of students. College Mentors has grown into a high-impact national organization at colleges and universities across nine states. With roughly 2,800 college student volunteers, we’re able to mentor 2,500 kids.

To ensure we are creating brighter futures for another 20 years, the Twentieth-Anniversary Campaign was created to invest in three pillars that will allow us to change the lives of thousands more kids and college students in a community near you.

Serving More Kids

College Mentors for Kids’ ultimate goal is to provide more kids with the opportunity to learn and grow through mentoring to better their futures and the communities around them. There is a lot of work to be done to reach the many kids who need a mentor to show them all they can accomplish. Expanding our service footprint will allow more kids to imagine and create a positive future.

Serving Kids Better

College Mentors for Kids’ Twentieth-Anniversary Campaign allows us to continue to strengthen the program quality and make investments that support long-term sustainability and excellence. Key staff investments are being made in training, coaching, and evaluation and in systems and resources to increase our lasting impact. Our goal is to continue to build an organization that is responsible and committed to our mentors, little buddies and partners. Through infrastructure and program development we can ensure our model lasts another 20 years and beyond.

Staying Connected

College Mentors for Kids’ celebration of our twentieth anniversary was the perfect time to reconnect with past alumni and to establish an alumni program. We are building an organization that recognizes the tremendous impact our mentors make and the benefits our little buddies receive through a network of ongoing support and commitment. Our alumni program allows past members to share their stories, encourages others to get involved, and raises awareness about the impact of the mentoring program.

We Need Your Help

Throughout our 20+ year history, College Mentors’ growth and lasting impact on kids in need has only been possible thanks to the unwavering financial support of dedicated staff members, board of directors, partners, our student volunteers, alumni and donors.

Your generous gift today helps assure a brighter future for a child tomorrow.
