College Mentors for Kids’ heart goes out to all those impacted by recent events across the country. As an organization, we believe that each person, including people of color, deserves the light of a bright future. We are saddened that promise has been broken for many. As we learn more about injustices occurring across our country, we stand with the victims of violence and their communities – we stand with George Floyd and his family. We acknowledge the need for crucial conversations around the topic of race and we know that we, as a society and an organization, have a lot of work to do. The College Mentors staff has already started conversations around improving our diversity training for this upcoming school year. We plan to include more constituents in this planning process, including our College Mentors for Kids student leaders, who are at the core of what we do and who make our mission of transforming lives through mentoring possible.
