The Mission of the
College Outreach USA Mentor Program:
College Outreach USA is
creating a mentor program which will educate students who are
minority, from the inner city, and/or from low-income families
(MIL), about the advantages of obtaining a college education. This
mentoring program will provide information to these MIL students
regarding the entire process involved in preparing for, choosing,
and applying to the correct college. In addition, the process will
provide them a friend with whom to consult.
To this end, College
Outreach USA has merged with College Outreach, a College Mentoring
Program started at Yale.
Research proves that MIL students attend college for many reasons.
Most importantly because they have a mentor who not only believes in
them, but also helps show them their self-worth. If you have the
passion to help MIL students succeed, we ask that you to contact us
at any of the addresses below and start being a mentor.
We believe that by providing information, friendship, and advice
we can encourage all MIL students whom we mentor to make an informed
decision about which college to attend. We feel that we can even
create MIL college applicants out of students who never believed
they could attend and graduate from college.
Our mentor program will include three divisions:
High school guidance
counselors or independent college professionals who are
willing to donate their time to counsel three (3) to five
(5) MIL students who are in their junior and/or senior year
in high school are eligible for our mentor program. The
professionals will help MIL students choose the proper
college. The mentoring may take place in person, by Skype,
over the phone, and/or via email. Interested professionals
