  1. Hi Lindsey. At my campus, mentoring is used in many different ways. However, we have not brought in community members to assist / mentor students in need - that is such a great idea! I'm interested in hearing the details of how you run the mentoring program, get students involved / committed to participating, and of course the results of how it helps the student succeed. Nice job!

  2. I love that you are supporting these students that may have not real support system at home. I am with Heather. I like that you are drawing on the community to help mentor and tutor these students. Great idea! Good luck with your project!

  3. I like your idea of promoting the program to the target/future students. Have you thought about asking the current students why they enjoy the program or comments of how the program has helped them with their studies or otherwise?
