Today, low-income high school students are less likely to apply to and enroll in colleges than they were ten years ago. Studies show that college mentoring can significantly boost students' submissions and enrollment rates, but most of our students attend schools that have one guidance counselor for every 500 students. Your mentorship can make a substantial difference in the life of a New York City student.
Mentors do not need to be experts in college enrollment--just dedicated to their students. If you have up to four hours a week to spend with a student from September through December you have what it takes to be a college mentor. See our volunteer page for more information and an application form.
Deadline for volunteer applications is September 14.
