U of R Students interested in participating?

If you enjoy working with kids in an academic setting or would like to become a mentor, we would love to hear from you! Students typically become children's program mentors and tutors to complete their CSAC/CER graduation requirement, fulfill a work-study award, or are simply interested in working with children and want to be involved. Interested students must submit an application, interview, submit a background/ student conduct check and attend training.
