The Student Community Engagement Office is seeking enthusiastic applicants to join our MAPS mentor team for the 2020-21 school year to support and mentor elementary school youth and be their "college lunch buddy"! Mentors will be trained in Fall 2020 be matched with their mentee by Winter 2021.
Alder Elementary School has a large population of students who face economic barriers in a diverse multilingual and multicultural area. PSU volunteers meet with Alder students weekly for one-on-one support to build relationships and foster a culture that promotes college attainment. In addition to supporting mentees through one-on-one connection in the classroom, mentors build strong relationships with their mentees as noon-time "lunch buddies," engaging in fun conversations, games, and activities to get the mentees thinking about college, higher education, and future careers. The Mentors: Alder and Portland State (MAPS) program is a collaboration between Portland State University and Together We Are Greater Than at Alder Elementary School (located at 17200 SE Alder St, Portland, OR 97233).
Transportation is provided by a generous sponsorship from Zipcar. Student mentors who are willing to be certified as PSU drivers help transport fellow mentors to Alder.
Mentor Primary Duties:
Applications are open from now through early Fall term. Mentor training will begin the final week of October and extend through November on either Tuesday or Wednesday mornings (depending on your availability). Mentors will be matched with their mentee by the end of Fall term and begin mentoring during the Winter/Spring 2021 terms.
The information you provide in this application will be used to assure that the MAPS program is pairing and recruiting the best mentors for our mentoring program. Please provide as much information as possible.
