I.U.College Mentors for Kids

Websitehttps://www.iucollegementors.org
AddressBloomington, IN 47401
Description

In 1996 the first chapter of College Mentors for Kids began with their first activity here at Indiana University. In the over twenty years since our chapter has worked to create mentoring relationships between IU students and the local community. Today our program has expanded to over one hundred kids who are students at three different elementary schools in Bloomington (Arlington Heights, Fairview, and Templeton). Every week these students and their mentors meet on campus for an activity that empowers, educates, and inspires them for the future.

Our organization is unique in that we are the only college student-run program at Indiana University to create mentoring relationships here on campus. We are proud of this, as well as the statistics that show the dual impact that the program has both on our little buddies and their mentors.
