At CSU there’s a way to serve the community while earning academic credits, and it’s called Campus Corps. Campus Corps is housed within the Department of Human Development and Family Studies and serves as a valuable public service by mentoring at-risk youth in the community.
The program is currently recruiting CSU undergraduates who are interested in being a positive role model for these at-risk youth. Many mentors have found the experience of interacting with youth to be inspirational and life-changing. To become a mentor with Campus Corps, students must attend an information session. Attendance at one of the sessions is mandatory, but attendees are under no obligation to apply if they attend the meeting. Just come and learn more about this exciting program and how to become a mentor.
How to apply
Following students’ attendance at one of the meetings, they are invited to submit a mentor application. Applications are currently being accepted for the fall 2015 semester, and are due April 1. Click here for the informational meeting schedule. Campus Corps may count for different curricular requirements in different majors. Those with questions that are specific to their major should contact their academic advisor. They can explain how Campus Corps will fit into one’s academic plan of study.
