CAMP (Collegiate Achievement Mentoring Program) Gator is a leadership-mentoring program in which collegiate student leaders serve as mentors to at-risk K-12 students. In addition, partnerships with Cisco and Franklin Covey Education have provided the program with the technology resources to conduct “virtual leadership mentoring” sessions with students throughout the state and nation. Participants in the pilot program experienced increased GPA’s, increased attendance and decreased school suspensions.
