These 1st – 4th Graders are College Bound

Magazine and comic book readers are enthusiasts about the titles that they read, which reflect the active interests that they are passionate about. This is why inserting magazines and comics into a mentoring relationship is so powerful – helping to break the ice and form a bond around common interests.

Early in our project, we are welcomed College Mentors For Kids to our program. CMFK! is an innovative mentoring program that cultivates ongoing mentoring relationships between college and elementary-aged students through shared learning experiences on the campus and in the community.

At the time, thanks to a generous donation from FosteReprints (now Foster Printings), near 800 first through fourth graders enrolled in the CMFK! program on 19 college campuses in Indiana and Illinois received yearlong subscriptions to U.S. Kids magazine from our Kid’s Magazine Airlift program with the Children’s Better Health Institute for three years.

CMFK! is growing to reach and change the lives of more children – more than 2,000 in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, New York, Maryland, Virginia, and Missouri. We look forward to continuing our literacy support for their compelling programs.
