WHAT IS STRIVE FOR COLLEGE?
Strive for College partners college students with low-income high school students to mentor them 1-on-1 through the college application and financial aid process.
WHO CAN BE A MENTOR?
Any current undergraduate at a 4-yr institution in the United States can serve as a mentor.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
College students sign up to be mentors HERE. They’re matched with a high school senior in the fall, and work with them 1 hour per week for 12 weeks to get them through the application process by the end of the semester.
HOW DO STUDENTS INTERACT?
This mentorship is entirely online. Mentors will work with their students through a comprehensive curriculum we’ve created, doing so through webcam on UStrive, a tool we developed for this very purpose.
•Will this kill my schedule or commit me to endless events?
Not at all. Strive only asks for 1 hour per week, 12 weeks total, finishing by December.
•What if I can’t get off-campus to do service?
No problem, Strive’s virtual mentoring program is all online, accessed from the comfort of your computer.
•What if I forgot something about the college application process?
No worries, Strive has a great, constantly updated curriculum breaking down the entire application process that you’ll be working through, so you don’t have to worry about remembering every single detail of your own experience.
•Great! How do I sign up?
Just click HERE and fill out the quick form. That’s it!
•Are there any cool extra perks?
Absolutely! Students who recruit the most classmates to sign up as mentors qualify for great prizes, and our top mentors get a free trip to our national conference next summer!
UStrive Online Mentoring Engine
Students and mentors each receive a unique login and a homepage that tracks the students application progress (as well as a small community of their peers).
Students and mentors can track application progress through discrete tasks.
Students can search for their best-fit colleges, sorted by expected cost & graduation rates.
