What is Mentor Collective @ Project SUCCESS?

  • CPP is one of many schools to partner with Mentor Collective (MC) to provide support within the community through mentorship.

  • Mentor Collective matches CPP affiliates with a trained mentor based on professional aspiration, common interests, background and academics.

  • Mentors are highly qualified Project SUCCESS affiliate alumni and current student leaders.

  • Mentor Collective mentorships involve meeting at least once per month, usually via video chat or in person.
