College awareness targeting students in elementary school, middle school, and early high school comprises of ELITE initiatives. It is through these programs that young students, public school teachers (and parents) are introduced or reintroduced to the University of North Texas and its outstanding academic programs.
UNT’s ELITE (Early Learning Initiative Toward Education) is an organization formerly known as Champions of Outreach that represents the Office of Outreach and the Early Years Program. ELITE Mentors are a diverse body of students that represent the variety of cultures, majors, interests, and talents that make up UNT. The organization motivates students to further their education beyond high school by exposing them to our university, classroom, and traditions. We host schools/community organizations in grades 3rd-9th by providing campus tours, college readiness workshops, career exploration, and activities that inform students about opportunities to further their success. ELITE mentors work to create an atmosphere in which individual differences are utilized to create unique opportunities for the thousands of young students impacted each year by the organization. For more information about ELITE call (940) 369-7391 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
ELITE’s goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of tomorrow’s leaders.
