Soldiers to Scholars Mentors
The Soldiers to Scholars Mentors are student veterans who provide leadership, after school tutoring, and community support to the elementary children who reside in Metro Place Apartments in East Orlando. The Soldiers to Scholars mentors are student veterans attending the University of Central Florida (UCF), Seminole State College (SS), and Valencia State College (VC). These mentors provide:
- Afterschool events and programs such as health fairs and educational field trips
