Mission Statement

At Marathon Scholars we believe that higher education is life changing and should be available to all who aspire. The Marathon Scholars program is designed to identify students whose socio-economic situation may present them with profound challenges but who have great promise and untapped potential. The Marathon Scholars program model utilizes a combination of mentoring, college scholarships and enrichment opportunities to invest in these children early - in 4th grade- and help remove the obstacles they will face on their marathon journey to complete a college degree.

Description

The heart and soul of the Marathon Scholars program is the Scholar-Mentor match. The match pairs one of our brilliant Scholars with a caring adult or couple that seeks to directly impact the life of a young person. We ask our Mentors to make a long-term commitment (minimum of 4 years) to develop and nurture a relationship with a young person, to serve as a role model, cheerleader, coach and all around expander of the possible!
