Inspire Awards


The  Inspire Awards is a signature event of College Mentors for Kids and will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana at the Indiana Roof Ballroom on Thursday, February 27, 2020. The awards luncheon attracts more than 500 community leaders.

The Inspire Awards celebrate mentors: people who have sat down with you over coffee and given advice, challenged you to grow, listened to new ideas and encouraged you. The Inspire Awards honors people who have given us all the courage to take a risky leap in our careers or inspired us to pursue a passion.

At this year’s Inspire Awards, we will recognize individuals that engage in mentoring for the benefit of others AND corporations/organizations that inspire a culture of mentoring. We hope you’ll join us in nominating deserving individuals and businesses and celebrating the award finalists and recipients at the event.
