A growing Indianapolis based nonprofit organization, College Mentors for Kids, pairs more than 1,700 first- through sixth-grade children with 1,900 local college student mentors. College Mentors’ signature mentor program has chapters on 23 college and university campuses in Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, New York, and Ohio. Through weekly after-school activities focused on higher education and career, culture and diversity, and community service, mentors help their “Little Buddies” understand the importance of education, show them the benefits to cultural understanding, and teach them ways to give back to their community.

At Transform Consulting Group, we salute College Mentors for Kids for motivating kids and college students to reach their full potential to positively impact the community.
