AHEPPP Cares 2018
Help Supply Our Little Buddies

AHEPPP Cares is excited to partner with the College Mentors for Kids program in Louisville during our annual conference in November.

College Mentors for Kids is a unique mentoring program that pairs college student volunteers with 2nd-5th grade kids for after school mentoring activities that take place on the University of Louisville’s campus. Kids and mentors are paired one-on-one, but all activities take place in a group setting. Activities take place every week during the school year and focus on three topics: higher education/careers, culture/diversity, and community service. Each day of mentoring involves a “college question of the week,” a hands-on activity, reading and journaling. College Mentors for Kids’ goals are to increase positive youth development, increase academic engagement and achievement, and increase community engagement and leadership development in college student volunteers. 

AHEPPP members are invited to bring school supplies, educational materials, and university branded items to the AHEPPP National Conference. Items will be collected at check-in and will directly support the efforts of the College Mentors for Kids program. The following is a wish-list of supplies:
