Strive program seeks mentors

Go On Idaho, Boise State, GEAR UP and Strive for College seek Boise State students to participate in a mentor program. The undergraduate mentor works one-on-one with mentees through the college application and financial aid processes during the course of one school year.

President Bob Kustra stated in a press release that he encourages high school students to engage in discourse with undergraduates.

“Giving Idaho high schoolers more access to some of our best and brightest students can only inspire more young people to realize their dreams are achievable,” Kustra said. “And that a college degree will pay off for a lifetime.”

If you would like to get involved in Strive as a mentee or mentor, contact David Eastwood at or visit
