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.


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.

This is a great organization and they're easy to work with/for. They have everything set up in an easy to follow format and are always available to offer support whenever necessary. I would definitely be interested in doing additional projects for them.
