College is a major life decision, but the process of getting into college can be confusing, frustrating and overwhelming. Plus, affording college can seem daunting.
Mentors 4 College helps students and families understand and navigate the college selection and application process. Our highly trained, volunteer mentors work one-to-one with students and families to choose a set of best-fit schools and provide guidance through the whole process. Check us out on our website: Mentors4College.org
If you can give your time , we'll train you to become a mentor or to help out with administrative tasks. If you've been to college, participated in an apprenticeship program and/or helped someone with these, then you already have the basics! Our training will provide the remainder of the knowledge you'll need to help students find their ideal colleges.
Mentors are encouraged to mentor at least 3-5 mentees. You only need to spend a few hours a semester with each mentee, and you can schedule that time whenever it's convenient. So you'll be doing a lot of good without committing a lot of time. Mentoring can be done entirely online.
We are a small organization with an experienced, hands-on board. When you start mentoring, a board member will be assigned to assist you. In-service training is conducted several times a year as well.
