College Bound, Inc., is a Washington, D.C., nonprofit organization that offers public and charter school students in grades 8-12 academic enrichment and resources to prepare for and succeed in college. Founded in 1991, the organization offers tutoring, mentoring, ACT/SAT preparation, and academic and career guidance free-of-charge to help students in the Washington, D.C., area meet their post-secondary educational goals. The Academic Mentoring Program matches students with college-educated volunteers to strengthen their math, language arts, and social skills, and prepare them for the college journey, while College Bound’s fall and spring College Tours give students an actual taste of college. Once students have been admitted, College Bound’s Virtual Mentoring Program helps them stay in college and navigate through the college experience.
