One on One College Mentoring

The heart of our program is personalized, individual counseling to any student, documented or not, who needs help or seeks guidance during the college application process. Our program will match a C4D mentor with one student. The goal is for them to meet on a regular basis and for the mentor to guide the student throughout the college application process

Mentor Testimonials:


Lilibeth, UConn Student, from Bridgeport - mentor

"I wanted to be a mentor because I know how difficult it could be for an undocumented student to apply to schools and get resources. I have cousins in my family that stopped their education after high school because they thought they couldn't go to college and there was no one really pushing them to go to school. Helping out students makes me feel like I'm helping others like my cousins and hopefully making a positive contribution in their lives. If my cousins had someone like a mentor providing guidance and genuine support, maybe they could have pursued higher education instead of settling with a high school diploma."


Our College Access Program has been a success. We have had 3 classes of mentors / mentees in 2012 and are gearing up for our next class of mentors in the Fall of 2013!

As the demand from the community grows, we must grow along with it.


I'm asking you to share your skills to help youth realize their dreams. We are looking for people who want to be college advising mentors.
