Hello, CAMP Mentees and Mentors!
This is your section of the College Access Portal! Click on the links below to be directed to so many college access goodies, you won’t know what to do with yourself! I encourage you to make every effort to hold your meetings at the Living Lab. If your time doesn’t match our public hours, try to make an appointment with Christina to use the lab during our non-public hours.
Living Lab Hours:
The Living Lab is currently closed to the public due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Can’t find what you’re looking for? Just let firstname.lastname@example.org know!
