College Positive Mentoring
College positive mentoring encourages and creates a pathway for K-12 youth to consider, plan for, and attend post-secondary institutions. Carefully structured and supported mentoring provides young people with the development resources needed for success. Combined with age appropriate, appealing college access activities and consistent encouragement, mentoring relationships help youth succeed both personally and academically, and set them on the pathway for higher education!
Mentor Michigan and Michigan Campus Compact developed the College Positive Mentoring Toolkit, designed to provide mentors and parents with information, conversation starters, match activity ideas, and ready-to-use activities, to help their mentees/children take important steps toward higher education.
