college student mentors

"Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them," Lady Bird Johnson once said. Our mentors make a real and lasting impression on the children they work with. They believe in their little buddies and devote their time and energy to College Mentors for Kids.

Our mentors come from all majors and backgrounds and are trained to work with kids. They make it possible for more than 1,700 children to spend time exploring college campuses and learning about careers, culture, diversity and community service.
