College Mentors for Kids connects college students with the most to give to kids who need it most.

Our innovative program focuses on improving the likelihood that elementary school youth from low-income homes will achieve their optimum potential while providing high-quality service and leadership opportunities for college students.  This is achieved through a unique mentoring relationship created between a college student volunteer and a child. The college student is recruited, trained, and supported in a chapter-based model, and then matched with a youth from a local school. The one-on-one mentoring occurs weekly within a structured, on-campus group environment.

We're a kids-focused organization, so the energy level surrounding all College Mentors for Kids work is kinetic and contagious. From the beginning, we've tapped into a youthful creative energy, a classic American spirit of entrepreneurism, and a relentless will to improve and grow. Using a proven model, we have been able to help halt the devastating effects of poverty.

More than twenty years later these values remain, as a passion for mission drives us to offer these transforming opportunities across the country. Today, over 2,500 children are served and mentored by 2,800 college student mentors and leaders across 33 college campuses in nine states.
