College MAP (Mentoring for Access and Persistence)
Unlocking students’ potential
Worldwide, Ernst & Young encourages our people to volunteer in our communities to improve access to education. In the US, we place special emphasis on college and university access — especially for disadvantaged students. This strategic focus on education:
► Mobilizes the business and problem-solving skills of Ernst & Young professionals to address a compelling community need
► Counteracts the effects of the current economic environment, which has made it more challenging for students to pay for higher education
► Expands and enhances the talent pool from which Ernst & Young, as well as our clients and community, will draw future employees
And it’s personal, too. One-third of Ernst & Young employees in the US are first-generation college graduates.
