Spartan Mentors

Spartan Mentors

The Spartan Mentors Program provides work study eligible students with an opportunity to earn money while giving back to the community. These students tutor elementary and middle school students on subjects such as math, science and reading. Some Spartan Mentors assist teachers with co-curricular activities like chess and photography. The schools receive much needed help without having to pay students an hourly wage. The Spartan Mentors Program is ideal for those studying education, however students of any major are encouraged to explore this work opportunity.

Responsibilities

Students are responsible for their own transportation to the local schools where they mentor. Students are also required to attend monthly meetings with the Spartan Mentor coordinator.
