Mentor Programs

G-Force Work-Study Mentorship Program

Funded through the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Center for First-Generation Students, this program strives to enhance student success, access, and completion. It offers work-study students an opportunity to develop and strengthen their career readiness skills. G-Force mentors, serving as peer mentors, provide guidance and resources to high school students and their peers, assisting them with completing the FAFSA/TAFSA, college applications, and scholarship searches.

G-Force Student Organization

G-Force mentors exemplify leadership by actively participating in student organizations, juggling multiple jobs, and serving as role models. From 2007 to 2023, the program has supported more than 370 students, 58.3% being first-generation college students. Mentors receive personalized guidance from staff, and opportunities for professional development. By reducing barriers to completion and expanding access to financial resources, the organization supports students in their pursuit of higher education and provides pathways to graduate school opportunities.
