I Know I Can's MENTOR U program pairs CCS graduates with professional mentors from the Columbus community to assist students in their college and career pursuits. The mentorship program utilizes an online mentoring platform, which provides prompts to promote conversations between mentor and mentee. Mentors will have the opportunity to communicate with their mentee a few times a month using this quality, state of the art online format.

Mentors will commit to working with their mentee for an entire academic year and need to reside in the Columbus area. Through the use of the online platform, mentors can expect to spend one hour a month in communicating with their mentee. The IKIC staff will provide training and support to mentors in their interactions with mentees as well as timely events for mentors and mentees to interact in person.
