Lunch Buddy Mentoring: Service Learning Course
Looking for three hours of course credit for the fall 2020 semester? Have you ever considered mentoring?
The Peer Safety Project, directed by Tim Cavell, professor in the Department of Psychological Science, is currently recruiting undergraduate mentors for the fall 2020 semester.
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 three 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 two hours twice a week (roughly between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m).
You will be scheduled for 30 minutes of mentoring plus drive time (approximately 90 minutes total) twice a week.
Organizers of the course are interested in recruiting mentors from any college and major. For more information, please contact Kayce Hyde at firstname.lastname@example.org.
