College Mentor for Kids unique program model ensures college students, children and our communities benefit. Utilizing the energy and passion of college students, College Mentors creates student-run chapters on university campuses.
Our program highlights include:
We partner with local elementary schools to enroll children in the program.
Transportation is provided to bring children to campus for mentoring activities which take place after school throughout the academic year.
Each child is paired one-on-one with a college student mentor, but activities take place in a small group to allow for peer-to-peer learning.
Activity topics focus on higher education and careers, culture & diversity and community service.
Children grow through a structured curriculum that includes reading time, guest speakers from all areas of college life, hands-on activities and journal time for reflection.
