Mentoring&More is a 501c(3) not for profit organization
Mentoring&More began in 2008 because of a belief: Everyone who aspires to higher learning deserves a chance to get a college education. If college historically has not been a part of the family fabric, then these aspirations need help to become a reality. Colleges are expecting well-educated and well-rounded applicants, and it is our mission to ensure that our students live up to college expectations.
We began as a group of five women who chose to make a difference in students’ lives. Over the four years of high school each of these Mentors took an active and comprehensive part in her student’s academic and personal development, supporting them during times of struggle, and opening doors for them during times of growth.
