Achieving higher graduation rates for first-generation students through mentoring

America Mentors

The Mission

Only 11% of first-generation, low-income students graduate college within six years of enrolling*. America Mentors’ mission is to increase the graduation rates for first-generation, low-income college students through mentoring.

How It Works

America Mentors is free to colleges, universities and community organizations to mentor first-generation, low-income college students. The America Mentors program uses a proven curriculum that enables guided interactions between mentor pairs, fostering strong relationships through timely and relevant conversations. Mentoring increases engagement and helps these students persist to graduation.

Our Part

MentorcliQ powers this cause and provides a user-friendly mentoring software system for recruiting, enrolling, matching, managing, and measuring mentoring participants.
