Reader to Reader Launches Partnership with Dartmouth College

Reader to Reader is proud to announce a new partnership with Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire.

This partnership, called CollegeKnowledge, centers around our mentoring program and will create a new multimedia college access mentoring program aimed at boosting Native American high school students’ success at navigating the college admissions process.

In addition to learning more about how to apply to school, participating students will also explore the ins and outs of college life and the many careers that come from a college education.

The pilot program will launch this February with Dartmouth college students producing weekly educational videos and using Skype to conference call with students attending the St. Michael Indian School in St. Michaels, Arizona.

The program will be run under the auspices of Dartmouth’s Native American Program. The Native American Program (NAP) provides student support services to Native students at Dartmouth.

“We are tremendously excited about this new partnership,” says Reader to Reader founder David Mazor. “Dartmouth’s founding mission in 1769 was to educate Native American students, and I believe that this collaboration will put Dartmouth and Reader to Reader on the cutting edge of 21st century programs developed for Native American high school students.”
