We at College Bound understand the value of time. And if you are going to invest your time into something other than your job and your family, we can not think of a better place to invest your time than in our future leaders.
College Bound owes its existence to the dedicated efforts of volunteers. We refer to our tutor/mentors as “partners” primarily because it takes the effort of both tutor and student to achieve the goal of attending college. Partners work with 8th – 12th grade public and public charter school students to complete homework, work within our Math and Language Arts curriculum, and in other college preparations.
