About

Denver Urban Scholars is seeking mentors to participate in Group Mentoring! All 6th grade students in the Stepping Stones program will participate in Group Mentoring to focus on building specific skills, including study skills, self-awareness, persistence, collaborative learning, goal setting, and building relationships. Group mentors would work with a group of 3-5 students weekly in their school, alternating between delivering curriculum and offering a group study hall. Study halls will be used to offer additional time to complete homework, check-in, and offer guidance on how to increase your students’ academic success. Each session will include a short, interactive activity to build on skills that will ultimately lead them to College and Career Readiness. Mentors can make a huge impact by joining in the learning process, being curious, and participating along with students.

We currently need volunteers on Wedensdays from 4-5:15 and Thursdays from 4:25-5:25.
