Career Mentors Needed for Upward Bound

The Upward Bound Project is searching for career mentors for high school students who are looking to gain work experience this summer. Students will be able to contribute 26 hours of volunteer work from June 10-July 2.

The Upward Bound Career Internship Program is designed to provide potential first-generation college students with mentoring, work experience and impact from a professional who encourages them toward a postsecondary education and careers. Students are available to assist with summer projects, perform basic clerical duties or provide office coverage. The Upward Bound administration tries to match students with faculty and staff working in their intended area of college study.

Career mentors must have a college degree and be able to provide supervision during work times since these students are minors. High school interns will be available to work Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons and will be paid from Upward Bound funds.
