Dear StudentMentor.org Community,

We want to wish you a happy holidays and thank each and every one of you for choosing to further our mission by helping college students and their mentors achieve their goals.

We launched StudentMentor.org in September with the help of dozens of volunteers and several companies that offered their pro-bono services. Our 400+ mentors are generously volunteering their time to impact the lives of college students. It has been very exciting to see just how fast we have grown in a short period of time! We were recently featured in CNN/Fortune, USA Today, and Yahoo! Finance.

Our team has been inspired by the stories you have shared with us. As one mentee explained, “My mentor understands me because she was in the same boat, working for little money and going to school. But she now makes a lot of money and has a career. That motivates me.”

If you would like to share your StudentMentor.org experience please email us at info@studentmentor.org. With your help, we can grow and improve our service to impact the lives of countless others this coming year.

Thanks again for helping our cause. Hoping you have a very happy holiday season!
