Vondale Singleton started the C.H.A.M.P.S. Male Mentoring Program at Chicago's Gary Comer College Prep in 2013 to help Black and Latino boys excel in the classroom. He knew firsthand that mentoring matters because it changed his life.
As a participant in Marquette University's Upward Bound Program and as an undergraduate here, Singleton found a mentor in Mr. Steve Robertson, associate director of pre-college programs in the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP).
"He showed me what greatness looks like," Singleton said of Robertson. "He said, the same thing I did for you, do for somebody else."
