What is The College Prep Project?
Our goal is to create a system where students are supported by us from the time they step foot in high school to when they graduate college.
1. 9th graders will receive a mentor, who is an incoming college student. This relationship will last over the course of 4 years.
2. The 9th grader will receive help in an individualized fashion. A vital aspect of this mentorship is every step through the college application process. However, college prep starts far earlier than your first application. Mentors will help with choosing high-school courses, extracurriculars, mental health, and any obstacles that may come up.
3. In return, mentors will receive a $1,000/yr scholarship, aid with all aspects of mentorship, and a fantastic experience that they can rely on for post-graduate goals. They are also encouraged to add/swap additional mentees from their community, in order to help them pay it forward.
