    Heights to Heights Mentoring

Heights-to-Heights (H2H) matches mentors from Columbia and Barnard College with middle school students who have recently immigrated to the U.S. H2H provides a supportive environment in which the students can improve their English conversational skills, form strong relationships with their mentors, develop important life skills, and gain cultural enrichment through exposure to education and cultural activities.

    The impact that my students have had is to realize that their future is an opened book. They love the program because they can actually experience a lifestyle that is very attractive to them and they know that they too can have the same lifestyle in their future, if they do well in their education.
