College Guild is a nonprofit in operation since 2001. We are based in Brunswick, Maine, and we reach students nationwide. Our board is a distinguished group of retired teachers, journalists, college students and a variety of other experts. Our volunteer base is almost 200 strong! More than 400 potential students are on our waiting list. Every little bit counts - you can do as much or as little as your schedule permits. The overwhelming consensus among our volunteers is that this is the most "mutually-rewarding" experience of their lifetime.
We have enrolled more than 6,000 incarcerated students who are seeking a chance to learn, improve, and grow. Through mutually-anonymous correspondence with careful guidance and quality control, volunteer readers provide feedback for students' work. All student work and reader feedback is processed through our office. There are no grades - our feedback is designed to encourage learning and to reinforce a positive educational experience. No experience is necessary! Just a willingness to respond thoughtfully, respectfully and promptly to student coursework.
