College Bound Today (CBT) is a nonprofit college access mentoring program that operates in the high schools of the Montebello Unified School District (MUSD) a few miles east of downtown Los Angeles. Since our founding in 2008, CBT has recruited more than 350 volunteers from many different walks of life to serve as CBT mentors in MUSD high schools. And since 2008, more than 1,300 MUSD high school students have been mentored by CBT volunteers.
We work hard to provide CBT students and their parents with encouragement, guidance and motivation as they navigate the college application process. Our mentors engage with CBT students and parents to help them understand that attending a 4-year college or university after high school offers a valuable opportunity that is affordable, achievable and desirable.
