King-Chávez-Parks First Year Mentor Program

“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.”

—John C. Crosby

Who We Are

Alma’s KCP Mentor Program provides mentorship for first year students seeking mentorship in navigating college and all it has to offer: the academic, social, and financial aspects. First-year students seeking mentorship are partnered with peer mentors to receive guidance on how to access college resources and be successful in college. The Alma College KCP Mentor Program is supported in part by the State of Michigan’s KCP Initiative. Apply to be a mentee here.
