For more than 40 years, America Mentors has been helping students pursue educational opportunities that empower them to embark on rewarding careers and strengthen their community. We provide students with guidance and access to funds to prepare for college and earn a degree. America Mentors is the only college access and success organization with advisors staffed in Greater Cleveland schools throughout the academic year. Serving approximately 20,000 annually, our students are nearly twice as likely to graduate from college as other low-income college students.
We provide guidance and resources to high school students as well as adult learners to prepare for educational opportunities after high school. By working one-on-one and in group settings, we’ve helped students from across the Greater Cleveland area secure financial aid and offset the cost of college tuition by awarding renewable, need-based, last-dollar scholarships.
