Yesterday, a group of five dedicated undergraduate mentors met their high school mentees at Hmong College Prep Academy for the first time. This group is part of the Asian American Partners for Tomorrow(AAPT) mentoring program. A pilot program that seeks to facilitate the academic and admission readiness of high-school aged Asian American students by: 1) addressing their personal and social readiness for higher education; 2) providing mentorship and academic support; and 3) by creating long-lasting relationships between undergraduate college students, local high school students, and AASP faculty and staff.

Mentors will engage their mentees with teambuilding activities as well as assist them with questions about higher education.

Thank you to Hmong College Prep Academy for partnering with us for this wonderful program. We look forward to building a strong partnership.
