Mentors - coming soon!
KAWSE hires students to serve as mentors for our fall, spring and summer workshops. We typically announce these positions here on our website, through the KAWSE listserv and on Handshake. To see what a typical announcement would look like, please see below for our most recent request for mentors for our GROW Saturday Workshop we held in February 2020.
Our events for 2020-2021 are all planned to be virtual with volunteer opportunities, so check out the SUCCEED volunteer page to see how you can get involved now!
Announcement for February 22 GROW Saturday Workshop Mentors
Mentors are paid staff members of the KAWSE office who serve as group leaders at our GROW workshops. Mentors are responsible for chaperoning a group of students, usually 10-12 at a time, to a schedule of activities set out for them when they sign up for one of our workshops. Additionally, mentors are responsible for facilitating activities, such as icebreakers and time-filler games, between scheduled events. Mentors are paid hourly and receive a free lunch at events.
