Through College MAP (Mentoring for Access and Persistence), EY encourages students to apply for college and helps them succeed once they get there. This allows EY to address a community need while also providing their employees with mentoring opportunities to develop tomorrow’s leaders.
EY wanted to improve access to education in its communities, with special emphasis on college and university access for underserved students.
Through College MAP, EY helps demystify the process of applying to and affording college, encouraging students who might not have considered applying for college to do so. EY employees mentor the students to build the skills that will help them persist in completing their post-secondary goals.
