Students gain skills as well as confidence, clarity, and connections to help them succeed in college and life.

I LOVED working with my mentor because she was both extremely helpful in guiding my research and pushed me to come up with my own ideas and find my own resources. I had such stimulating conversations with her that helped me develop my interests and challenge some of my preconceptions.

"It was a transformative experience...it has inspired me greatly to continue understanding civic engagement in the upcoming years of my life...I will remember my time with her as a period where I learned just as much about myself as I did the material."
