Our mission is to mentor and support
for college success
High school students who are the first generation in their families
to attend college face overwhelming challenges.
They may not know what to expect of college life and have no one to answer their questions. The sad fact is that more than 25% of low-income first-generation students drop out of college by the end of first year,
and only 40% make it to graduation within six years.
CHECK OUT OUR 8TH ANNUAL SCHOLAR CELEBRATION!
Each student selected as a Campus Bound Scholar is matched with a trained adult mentor who provides support, guidance, information and friendship during the summer prior to departure and throughout college.
Mentors keep in touch regularly with students and guide them on topics such as time management, academic issues, handling finances, homesickness, and many other challenges encountered by first-gen college students.
Happy National Mentorship Day
In recognition of all our Campus Bound Scholar mentors, today we are pleased to announce a $10,000 Fundraising Match Challenge. An anonymous donor has generously offered to match your donations to support our programming including mentor training, scholarship funds, welcome and send off events, scholar emergency funds and more. Please help us reach our goal!
Congratulations 2021 Graduates
Thanks for all the love at our recent 8th Annual Scholar Celebration. There were cheers and tears as we gathered our scholars, their families, our mentors, donors and friends to greet our newest First Year college students and congratulate our graduating college seniors, the Class of 2021.
