CollegeBound Mentoring Program



CollegeBound pairs 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders from Ames High School and female college students from Iowa State University. The group will meet biweekly and meetings will focus on transitioning to college, mental health awareness, diversity and inclusion, career exploration, community service, leadership development and fun. These focus areas will help encourage self growth and preparation for higher education for high school students.


During the "off-weeks" the pairings are encouraged to form and attend group events such as volunteer work, going to the movies, campus visits and much more.


The YWCA Ames-ISU is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. Apply now if you are interested in being a part of the CollegeBound Mentoring Program and help work towards this valuable mission!
