ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: College Now Greater Cleveland

College Now invites you to mentor with the College Now Mentoring Program! Just two emails per month and three meetings per year (virtual or in-person) can make the difference for a college student.


Think back to when you were 18 - did you have all the answers? Chances are, you benefited from the advice and guidance of a trusted adult. Whether it was a professor, employer, or another figure in your life, someone took the time to get to know you and help you grow as a person. College Now invites you to pay it forward and play just such a role. Join our 2,000+ mentors and make a difference in a student’s life!

The College Now Mentoring Program has helped students from Greater Cleveland reach graduation day for the last eleven years. Our students graduate at a rate nearly twice the national average for their peer group!

We pair scholarship recipients with volunteers from the community who have two- or four-year degrees, who provide guidance, advice, and encouragement to students. Many of our scholarship recipients are the first in their families to attend college. Mentors are crucial to help students make the most of their college years while staying on track to graduate on time. Students and mentors are connected through an online platform, Chronus, which helps facilitate communication, offers tools to guide each relationship, and helps track program effectiveness. In addition, Mentoring Program staff provides individualized support to mentors and students, and also provide ongoing training and networking opportunities for mentors.
