Become a Village Mentor

Village Mentors are integral to the Village experience and engage residents around common learning experiences through curricular and co-curricular experiences. Village Mentors foster deeper exploration of their assigned Village’s academic and or cultural/identity-based vision. Village Mentors establish a peer-to-peer relationship with Village participants to provide support, spark curiosity, and promote the development of knowledge and skills. Through specialized training in their Village’s pedagogical framework, Village Mentors will engage residents through activities, events, and programs that provide village thematic learning, academic support, and holistic student development.
