Testimonials from America Mentors users.
“America Mentors has been such an impactful partner in helping NSU not only launch but execute an effective mentorship program for First Generation in College Students. The team has been instrumental in assisting our matching process to ensure mentees are working with a mentor that best fits their needs as college students. In addition, the resources provided have had an immense impact on our mentees being able to understand the hidden curriculum in college and ease their transition into a college environment while reaching desired goals.” - Emilio Lorenzo DIRECTOR OF STUDENT SUCCESS NOVA SOUTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY
“Overall, my mentor gave me the confidence to keep striving after my academic goals despite life’s circumstances. I plan on continuing my academic journey, even if it just one class at a time.” - Lone Star College Mentee
America Mentors has been essential to our mentorship initiative’s success. The support staff at America Mentors have been responsive and knowledgeable in helping to customize the program to suit the needs of our students. The program allows users to track student and mentor participation in compelling ways, including custom mentorship Milestones that students enjoy completing. Perhaps best of all, America Mentors does not require students to learn yet another digital platform.
