Become a UECC AmeriCorps Mentor

UECC AmeriCorps Mentor program is made up of highly committed college students who are passionate about helping young people. If this is you, apply and join us.

Community service has always been a part of who I am. I took full advantage of an opportunity to reinforce and expand on a community to which I had a limited connection prior, and that was a very inspiring experience.
