How is Connect 4 Success helpful?

  • Your Mentor is there encouraging & helping you transition to college.
  • Students are exposed to one on one interactions in order to build the necessary skills to be successful at the college level.
  • Students have the freedom to seek out a C4S team member to obtain any additional information to help them succeed. 
  • Students can attend C4S workshops to deepen their  thought process, build valuable skill sets & gain the necessary confidence to succeed at the college level.

What Are Student/Mentees' Responsibilities?

  • Make a commitment to meet with your C4S Mentor.
  • Students are responsible for reaching out and connecting with C4S Mentor!
  • 1:1 meetings must be face to face and on campus.  
  • Plan to set aside weekly time for this commitment, especially in the beginning.
  • Cancel an appointment if you cannot make it via text, email and/or phone call.  And, then, we expect students to take initiative to re-schedule immediately.
  • Work on achieving goals that you set.
