Our Model

  • Utilizing the energy and passion of college students, College Mentors creates student­run chapters on university campuses.
  • We partner with local elementary schools to enroll kids in the program.
  • Transportation is provided to bring kids to campus for mentoring activities which take place after school throughout the academic year.
  • Each kid is paired one­on­one with a college student mentor but activities take place in a small group to allow for peer­to­peer learning.
  • Activity topics focus on higher education and careers, culture & diversity, and community service.
  • Kids grow through a structured curriculum that includes reading time, guest speakers from all areas of college life, hands­on activities and journal time for reflection.
