Ways to Volunteer

Become a Mentor

In 2011, College Now created a Mentoring Program for College Now scholarship recipients to help students through their postsecondary journeys and to increase their retention, persistence, and graduation rates. The program expanded in 2019 to include Say Yes scholarship recipients, as well. Every year, College Now must recruit nearly 1,000 mentors to pair with incoming freshmen.
