**All College Bound meetings and events will be hosted online for the 2020-2021 school year due to COVID-19**

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 for two hours at a designated site.

College Bound serves more than 200 students, in grades 8-12, from over 50 public schools in the Washington, D.C. area in our Academic Mentoring Program.

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!

*Our Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday academic mentoring sites begin at 5:30 pm, 6:00 pm, or 6:30 pm and last a total of two hours.

Mission Statement

The mission of College Bound is to prepare public and public charter school students in the metropolitan D.C. area to enter college, earn a degree, and achieve their personal and professional goals. Through a combination of mentoring, tutoring, college prep, and scholarship opportunities, College Bound provides these underserved 8-12th grade students with access to one of life's greatest gifts - the opportunity to obtain a college education.

Description

College Bound was founded in 1991, on the premise of pairing students with adult volunteers to work toward academic goals that will foster meaningful and effective mentoring relationships. The Academic Mentoring Program matches students with college educated mentors, who aid them in the college preparatory process. Students and mentors work weekly on homework, within the curriculum, and on various college preparation activities. Students who participate in the Academic Mentoring Program also participate in numerous enrichment activities, such as college tours and career fairs, and are eligible for the College Bound Scholarship.
