College MAP (Mentoring for Access and Persistence) is an Ernst & Young LLP signature volunteer program focused on helping underserved high school students navigate the college admissions process and build the skills and confidence they need to succeed in their post-secondary journey. Since 2009, EY has worked with CFES to bring this innovative team mentoring program to College MAP Scholars in 30 US cities. Through monthly meetings and ongoing mentoring, more than 900 EY Volunteers have been able to reach 1,200 underserved youth to develop skills that will help them persist in completing their post-secondary education:
- Awareness of the lifelong benefits of getting a higher education
- Financial readiness that helps students apply for aid and pay for college
- Persistence skills to help students complete a degree and succeed in careers
