Photo Submitted

Looking for 3 hours of course credit for the spring 2019 semester? Have you ever considered mentoring?

The Peer Safety Project, directed by Tim Cavell, professor of psychology, is currently recruiting undergraduate mentors for the spring 2019 Lunch Buddy Mentoring course: PSYC 207V, a Lab Experiences Service Learning Course.

Students will learn about school bullying and youth mentoring, will mentor an elementary school student twice/week, and will write a term paper about their experiences. In return, mentors receive 3 hours of course credit and many great experiences.

Mentors are required to participate in a screening interview and a brief training, to undergo a criminal background check, to have reliable transportation, to have lunch availability for at least 90 minutes twice a week (roughly between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m).

Organizers of the course are interested in recruiting mentors from any college and major. For more information, please contact Lauren Mutignani at lmmutign@uark.edu.
