College Mentors for Kids

College Mentors for Kids is an innovative non-profit organization that pairs youth with local college student mentors for weekly activities that expose youth to the opportunities of higher education. Every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, Ball State University hosts roughly 170 children from West View, Albany, Eaton, and Royerton Elementary Schools, as well as, over 160 college students from the university. Throughout the year, a bond is formed between the Little Buddy (Child) and the Mentor (College Student) that will last a life time. Our mission is to connect college students with the most to give to kids who need it most.

Men in Education

Men in Education is about gaining experience. We want to inspire one another and make a difference while empathizing with the gender solitude that may be felt by males upon studying their particular major in education. Men in Education members will participate on campus events and programs, as well as phers, and and at Wes Del Elementary. MIE finds immersive learning imperative to success for the future, therefore we volunteer two days every week at Wes Del Elementary School (Wed & Thurs from 2:45 - 3:00 p.m.) tutoring our students of the future.
