To facilitate transforming economically disadvantaged Portland youth into globally aware and socially engaged college graduates.
Carpe Mundi provides low-income, first-generation Portland college students with a year-long mentorship and scholarship program that includes an experiential education study abroad semester. Since 2009, Carpe Mundi has worked with 89 low-income Portland college students, supporting them during an entire school year, including a semester abroad through our partner organization, Carpe Diem Education. Students receive academic and logistical support, do local internships and service work, and travel abroad to one of five locations: Central America, East Africa, India, South America, or Southeast Asia. Carpe Mundi connects students to their education in a completely different way, increasing the likelihood that they'll graduate from college and be change makers in their own community.
