I'm a student. I don't have a project, but I want to get involved and help.

You can apply to join our Core Organizing Team! Roles include:

  • Event Planning
  • Marketing

I have some skills and experiences that might be helpful to students. I am interested in mentoring.

Mentorship is crucial to help students succeed. Mentors get to:

  • Engage in supporting students who are working to change the world

  • Catch the energy of incredible students who believe a better future is possible

  • Connect to a network of other Mentors from a wide range of backgrounds
