A Campus Mentor is a pro-life missionary who mentors students to change hearts and save lives.
Campus Mentors (CMs) are on the forefront, forming students into pro-life leaders. CMs guide students through 1 on 1 mentoring, teach in small groups, and lead students to pro-life action.
The Campus Mentor program is a two-year service program for college graduates that equips participants to build a culture of life with love, joy, and hope.
