Campus Connections recruiting new mentors for fall

Campus Connections, formerly known as Campus Corps, is recruiting new mentors. It is a multidisciplinary service-learning course (HDFS 470) that involves mentoring at-risk youth referred through the juvenile justice system, schools, community agencies, etc.

Campus-Connections-with-CSU CSU students enrolled in Campus Connections are paired with a youth 11-18 years old and provide one-on-one mentoring for 12 weeks. Campus Connections is offered on campus on four different nights (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday). Students who participate choose one of those four sections.

Campus Connections is unlike any other class at CSU. Students have described their experience as life-changing and one of the most memorable experiences of their college career. Mentoring, and other volunteering experience, has proven to be a great way to diversify resumes. Students gain an important new skill set and professional experience with a high-need population.

Applications are due April 1 by 5 p.m. in the Gifford Building, Room 142. Students must attend an informational meeting in order to participate. To apply, visit the application website, and to learn more visit the Campus Corps website.
