Welcome, Families!

What is college mentors for Kids?

College Mentors for Kids is a mentoring program that matches elementary school children with college student mentors. College Mentors is all about exposing children to higher education and helping them succeed in life. Children discover new careers and learn the value of working hard in school today so that they can achieve their goals in the future. Mentors encourage children to reach for the stars and believe in their dreams. Mentoring takes place:

• In a group setting – Your child will have their own mentor and will participate in group activities with other kids and college students.
• Once each week during the school year – When the elementary school or the college is on break, there won’t be an activity.
• Afterschool – The kids take a bus to the nearby college campus afterschool one day each week.

College Mentors inspire growth, confidence, and brighter futures. Each week your child will participate in developmental appropriate activities about higher education and career, culture and diversity, or community service.
