Welcome to the Ohio State Chapter of College Mentors for Kids!

Our Mission

Mentoring transforms lives: we connect kids to college students through weekly on-campus activities that inspire growth, confidence, and brighter futures.

How it Happens

We pair Ohio State students one-on-one with 1st – 5th grade students from one of five local elementary schools. Once a week, we bring them onto our campus and introduce them to our Three Pillars by partnering with other student organizations at Ohio State.

Our Three Pillars


Higher Education and Careers

We introduce our buddies to the opportunities possible through higher education as well various pathways to a diverse array of careers.

Our buddies learn the importance of putting others before themselves and learn valuable skills at the same time.


Culture and Diversity

Our buddies investigate the differences between individuals, groups of peoples, and across whole communities and learn the importance of diversity.
