Our mission is to mentor and support 
first-generation students
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. 


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.
