College Bound Poster

College Bound is a partnership between the Institute for Global Understanding at Monmouth University and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County. Monmouth University students meet with local youth on an ongoing basis and provide them with information about preparing for university study.

MU students also:

  • serve as role models;
  • assist youth in setting academic, personal, and career goals;
  • serve as a resource to encourage youth to explore their options for higher education;
  • and help youth navigate the college application process.


The program also offers free SAT prep, aids in the college application process, provides financial aid and EOF information, runs essay and resume writing workshops, and tours colleges and universities while pairing mentees with professional mentors who reinforce all of the goals of the college bound program.
