Since 1991 College Bound has helped students achieve the goal of graduating from high school and going to college. College Bound has six academic mentoring sites, located in Washington DC, that serve middle, junior high and high school students.
College Bound practices a one-to-one mentoring model, one student is paired with one mentor ("partner") and both work together throughout the school year to achieve academic success. Students and partners are committed to meeting once a week at a designated academic site. Each year College Bound helps 100% of its students graduate from high school.
Help us make college completion a reality by signing up to serve as a mentor! We are currently recruiting volunteers for the 2017-2018 academic year!The Academic Mentoring Program will resume in September.
*Our Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday academic mentoring sites begin at 5:30pm, 6:00pm, or 6:30pm and last a total of two hours.
