About us

Mentor for Philly is building a new type of college pathway right here in Philadelphia. Instead of just asking where we can send students to college, we are changing the conversation to ask where and how we can best support them through college. 

In order to truly prepare students for college, they must be able to think, feel, and act like successful college students in the first place. During two summer institutes and a school-year program during high school, our mentees immerse themselves in real college campuses and are mentored by incumbent college students, who help them learn, practice, and embody firsthand the skills necessary to achieve in college academically within a classroom and socially on campus. Then, our students transition into Philly College Team, a "community cohort" support system of continued mentorship, advising, and counseling at Community College of Philadelphia.
