About

The transition from high school to college can be challenging for many students, particularly for first-generation, low income, students of color, and/or immigrant and refugee students. As a Summer Bridge Mentor, you will be matched with one or two Denver Metro Area high school graduates to support their successful transition into college.

Students and mentors meet in a group setting one evening a week in June and July (except for the week of July 4 th) on Tuesdays from 6-8 pm.

Topics of discussion include self-advocacy, time management, financial aid and budgeting, healthy decision making, cultural shifts, and accessing campus resources.

Following the summer group meetings, mentors will provide support and encouragement to their mentees during their first semester.
