G-Morce Mentors

About the G-Force Mentor Program

The G-Force Work-Study Mentorship Program, funded through the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Center for First-Generation Students is dedicated to enhancing student success, access, and completion. This program offers work-study students the opportunity to hone their career readiness skills while serving as peer mentors to high school students and their peers. G-Force mentors provide invaluable guidance and resources, assisting with tasks such as completing the FAFSA/TAFSA, college applications, and scholarship searches.

In addition the G-Force Mentorship Program is also an active student organization on campus, where mentors exemplify leadership through service. Since 2007, the organization has supported over 370 TWU student leaders, with 58.3% being first-generation college students. Mentors benefit from personalized guidance and professional development opportunities provided by staff. By removing barriers to completion and expanding access to financial resources, the organization empowers students in their pursuit of higher education and opens pathways to graduate school opportunities.
