College Now Is Recruiting Volunteers

College Now Greater Cleveland is recruiting volunteers with a college degree for a virtual opportunity to mentor college scholarship recipients starting in the 2022-2023 academic year. Students are from Northeast Ohio and are receiving a College Now or a Say Yes Cleveland scholarship. Join over 2,000 professionals from Greater Cleveland in making a difference by mentoring!

As a mentor, you message your mentee twice a month and meet or connect virtually three times a year. Mentors provide advice, guidance, and support to students, many of whom are first in their families to attend college. According to Mary Alice Conkey, Executive Director of the NEOEA and a College Now mentor, “It’s a great way to give back, while not requiring a huge time commitment. Others helped me to get where I am, and I wanted to pay it forward. This program lets me do just that.” Indeed, such a small investment of time pays huge dividends – College Now students graduate at nearly twice the rate of their peers nationally!

By signing up today, you can help ensure that these ambitious students from Northeast Ohio have the support they need to succeed. Apply here by April 1st to be considered for a match in summer 2022. Once your application is complete, a staff member of College Now will contact you about the next steps. Contact Madeline Rife mrife@collegenowgc.org or 216.635.0163) for more information.
