Spartan Mentors

The Spartan Mentors program provides work study eligible students with an opportunity to earn money while giving back to the community. Spartan Mentors tutor elementary and middle school students within the Tampa community on subjects such as math, science and reading. Spartan Mentors also assist teachers with co-curricular activities such as cooking, music, photography and sports. The Spartan Mentors program is ideal for those studying education, however students of any major are encouraged to explore this work opportunity.


Students are responsible for their own transportation to the local schools where they mentor.
