Haley Allen

Hi David, I completely understand! We feel the same way. We are not planning on doing in-person volunteering until we believe it is completely safe to do so, and are very excited for the day that it finally is!

Laura, Thank you so much for asking! In order to be accepted as a Skills-Based Mentor, you simply need to have a passion for helping students meet their academic and personal goals. We have an application that you can fill out on our volunteer page that will help us identify your skills and interests. If you select that you are interested in being a mentor, I will personally get you matched with a student who is in need of skill set that you have.
