College Mentors for Kids is a service-based group that mentors local youth. Focusing on elementary-aged kids, College Mentors buses the kids to campus once a week, where they meet one-on-one with a mentor who, over the school year, acquaints them with the campus in various activities. Each buddy pair is a part of a buddy family consisting of other little buddies and their mentors. One day a week for two hours, the buddy families participate in various activities around campus. Past activities have included going to Assembly Hall to watch the basketball team practice, going to a chemistry lab where a professor teaches them how to make ice cream, and visiting the Indiana Daily Student where they get to make the front page of a newspaper. Through various activities our goal is to empower our little buddies by increasing their worldview on service, culture, and career opportunities.
