What is college mentors for Kids?
College Mentors for Kids is an after-school program where children are paired with a college student mentor for a full academic year. The program works with elementary school partners to identify children who could benefit from a mentor and is offered at no cost to families. College Mentors is not a tutoring program but rather encourages the joy of learning through educational activities in a group setting while getting one-on-one attention from a mentor. Activities are adapted for each grade level and center on higher education and career, culture and diversity, or community service. Chapters offer opportunities to meet mentors early in the year and transportation to your local College Mentors chapter is provided (activities take place at your local university). If your child has been selected by their school to participate in College Mentors for Kids, we’re excited to meet them!
