Become a mentor for middle school students and empower them for future careers!

How do mentors make an impact?

Volunteer Mentors join us in the classroom to support a new hands-on approach to teaching and learning-one that helps neurodivergent and underserved students develop the skills, mindsets, and networks to thrive in the 21st-century economy.

They build trusting relationships with students that are critical for their learning and growth, and in turn our students thrive while working with mentors that look like them, seeing themselves in the potential of various career paths.

Mentors will commit to attending weekly classroom visits with students and are intentionally matched with students according to their skillsets, work experiences, classroom needs, and project needs.

What will you do?

  • Work with a classroom of neurodivergent students to complete an experience-based learning project.
  • Provide insight into future careers by connecting project skills to learnings from your career and educational background.
  • Support students' presentation skills, critical thinking, and collaborative problem-solving, and provide feedback on students' work.
  • Promote a positive and inclusive learning environment that respects and values neurodiversity.
  • We match you with a classroom that meets your schedule!

What is the commitment and training like?

  • Volunteers commit to attend weekly, (1) hour-long classroom sessions; 4-8 classroom sessions in total
  • Training/Support will be provided
