Mobilizing college students to inspire the next generation.
In under-resourced school systems, teachers tasked with large classes are not able to give students individualized attention and students struggle to access resources, engage in collaborative study, and navigate the educational system in order to envision and plan for their futures. The staggering funding gap of $23 billion between majority-white and majority-nonwhite school districts means these challenges disproportionately affect students of color.
C4C forges an infrastructure to help schools address these challenges. We identify a diverse cohort of college students who support existing school curriculum and mentor students within under-resourced school systems. This provides students the individualized attention, care, support, knowledge and empowerment necessary to supplement classroom teaching and help them take control of their futures.
