Path Mentors was born out of our dissatisfaction with the toxic high pressure environment that college admissions has created. We recognize our natural human desire to succeed and that getting into a college is a milestone. At the same time, we believe that there's a more fulfilling way to spend your high school years than completing the standard checklist of high test scores, overwhelming course loads, and meaningless clubs.
Our current education system tends to lack a personalized component of hands-on learning by doing. We genuinely believe in the power and impact of having a mentor who can guide and teach based on one's individual interests. Path Mentors helps high school students explore their interests through project-based mentorship with a current student or recent graduate of top universities.
No one can build you the bridge on which you, and only you, must cross the river of life. There may be countless trails and bridges and demigods who would gladly carry you across; but only at the price of pawning and forgoing yourself. There is one path in the world that none can walk but you. Where does it lead? Don’t ask, walk!
- Friedrich Nietzsche, 19th Century German Philosopher
