College Path Mentorship

 – Mentoring for Academic and Personal Development –

We are proud to announce our new project for the youth: College Path Mentorship (CPM) Program

Our free-of-charge College Path Mentorship Program aims to increase college attainment rates by students from low education-level and high poverty areas of New Jersey. CPM, by providing free and quality college preparation, expands access to educational experiences to these students who are otherwise least likely to get college education. 

We believe that students regardless of their socioeconomic background  within a cooperative, collaborative and supportive academic and social environment will excel at academics while fulfilling their intellectual, mental and social potential. The CPM provides a unique opportunity for the students by committing long term mentor-mentee relationships, which will not only enhance the student’s probability of admission into four year colleges but also help them for a successful transition from high school to college. 

The program offers quality, well-rounded educational experiences by equipping mentees with not only academic, but also social skills needed for college success. Strong academic support is offered to high school students by their college mentors who assist them weekly with essay writing, resume building, SAT/ACT testing, and grade management. Mentees in this project  will also receive support to pursue or discover  their career interests and aspirations, begin researching colleges to pursue their goals, and encourage and define themselves as college bound students. 

The program targets students who are enrolled in free or reduced lunch programs in their schools.
