AP Mentoring Program

nConnect's AP mentoring program is making a positive impact on the students, mentors and teachers involved.

Students
nConnect program participants are 50% more likely to take AP exams than their fellow students. 98% of past participants are enrolled in college with 58% pursuing a STEM major, and 68% planning on a STEM career.

"My mentor provided more than just content-based insight. Our group discussed life and the future (mostly college and careers) in depth and I gained a lot from that. I think the fact that my mentor provided me with a wide array of useful information and opinions benefited me greatly and I am glad that I had the opportunity to experience it."
