Becoming a Mentor

About the Program

Campus Connections is a service-learning course offered at UCCS to undergraduate and graduate students who have relevant education and experience. Mentors can expect to earn 3-credits for their participation in the program and should plan to attend a weekly lab session from 3:00pm-9:00pm. Youth mentees participate from 4:00pm-8:00pm, arriving an hour after and leaving an hour before mentors, mentor coaches, and instructors. This allows time for mentors to prepare for and wrap up the evening.

With Campus Connections, you will:

  • Build connections
  • Earn credit
  • Become a role model
  • Provide academic and emotional support
  • Engage in pro-social activities
  • Try new challenges with your mentee
