Spartan Mentors

The Office of Student Leadership and Engagement's Spartan Mentors program provides volunteer and Federal Work Study eligible students with an opportunity to mentor and tutor local K-12 students at the community partner sites listed below. Spartan Mentors may tutor on subjects such as math, science and reading. They may 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 opportunity.


  • Students are responsible for their own transportation to the local schools where they mentor. The program will work to organize carpooling but cannot guarantee provided transportation.
  • In order to receive pay, student applicants must be eligible for Federal Work Study through the Financial Aid Office and apply on Workday or Handshake. If a student is not eligible for Federal Work Study, they may be a mentor as a volunteer and receive volunteer hours.
