There are some things young people shouldn’t have to go through alone. Life is one of them.

Now more than ever, young people living in Columbus need to be connected to caring adults who can help them experience life in a healthy, positive, and productive way.


One person can make a difference. That person could be you. Make a Difference


The Columbus Mentoring Alliance is a collaborative effort among several programs and organizations that serve children and youth living in Franklin County, OH. This mentor-recruitment campaign has been spearheaded by the CCSD Office of Student Mentoring of the Columbus City School District and the City of Columbus. Our aims:

  • Recruit more adults to serve as mentors for Columbus youth
  • Develop a network of existing mentorship programs to continuously improve our services
  • Identify additional places and spaces where quality mentorship can occur
  • Promote and establish a culture of mentorship in the Columbus community
