Mentor Walk

Mentor Walk

Agnes Scott College is hosting Mentor Walk College Immersion Day, a college preparatory experience for middle and high school girls on Oct. 25. Mentor Walk is an innovative program of the Campus Community Partnership Foundation which inspires children to stay in school and experience a college campus with college students as near peer role models and mentors for the day.

This year’s event was inspired by the United Nations 2nd annual celebration of the International Day of the Girl Child with a theme of “Innovating for Girls’ Education.” We will welcome more than100 girls from schools including Drew Charter School, Freedom Middle School, the Fugees Academy, Global Village School and Renfroe Middle School. Agnes Scott student volunteers, faculty and staff will spend the day encouraging girls to finish school and attend college.
