Classroom Mentors


These volunteers are the backbone of the U School program. Mentors create a welcoming and supportive space for the students on campus and helps the program in operations. This is an opportunity for people from the university community to interact with the students in large groups and small groups.

Your role is to:

  • Role model for the students asking questions and participating in activities
  • Engage with the students in a friendly and welcoming manner
  • Share your experiences of university with the students
  • Support and encourage students in their journaling
  • Supervise students as we travel across campus to ensure that no one wanders off
  • Respond to journal entries at the end of the day
  • Enter data and prepare classroom for next day

We are looking for a diverse group of volunteers who do many different things on campus. Our goal is for the students to be able to see themselves on campus and it helps when someone who looks like them is part of their experience. You are welcome to volunteer as many times as your schedule will allow!
