What is Compass 2 Campus?

Mentor helping studentsThe Western Washington University Compass 2 Campus Mentorship Initiative is a pilot program implemented by House Bill 1986 which passed both Houses of the legislature on April 21, 2009. The program is designed to increase access to higher education by providing an opportunity for students from traditionally underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds in Whatcom and Skagit counties to be mentored by C2C students.

The program has the following objectives:

  • Increase GPA and reduce truancy among elementary students.
  • Empower kids to make good choices about the future.
  • Increase C2C students' leadership and commitment to giving back to their community.

Our overall goal is to help more students graduate from high school and encourage them to consider some form of higher education.

We are excited about this initiative! This program has the chance to make a real difference in the lives of hundreds of young students in our community. We would love to have your involvement, please feel free to contact us for more information.
