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.

College Mentors inspire growth, confidence, and brighter futures. Each week your child will participate in developmentally appropriate activities about higher education and career, culture and diversity, or community service. If your child has been selected by their school to participate in College Mentors for Kids, we’re excited to meet them! You should have received an invitation to participate in our program from your child’s school. This fall, our program will be virtual. College Mentors for Kids has developed a virtual model called College Mentors at Home. Our national, after-school program pairs elementary students with a college student mentor for an entire academic year. Your child will learn alongside a college student mentor during weekly virtual activities through video chat or phone call. All costs are covered by College Mentors for Kids. Check out the video below to learn more about College Mentors at Home!

So during College Mentors At Home, your child will:

  • Develop a relationship with his or her college student mentor: College Mentors Connect will be an academic year-long opportunity for a few local buddy pairs to connect weekly via video chat or phone. All participants in College Mentors at Home will join a buddy family in College Mentors Connect.
  • Have the opportunity to learn via live-streamed activities: College Mentors Live will be an opportunity for families to tune into a streamed college-student-led College Mentors activity once per week. Our expansive network of chapters will give children the opportunity to learn from universities near and far during College Mentors Live.
