Volunteer as an Academic Mentor

Are you interested in sharing your career, hobby or passion with a DPS student?

Volunteering as an Academic Mentor is a rewarding experience and a relatively easy way to make a significant difference in the life of a young person.  The project provides opportunities for learning that are not available in the regular classroom and gives the student an opportunity to explore an area of passion in depth.   Students and Academic Mentors work on projects designed to help the students learn more about particular careers, or to increase their understanding and competence in an area of outstanding ability. Mentorships culminate after approximately six hours together with the students sharing their learning experience in the form of a classroom presentation.

Volunteer mentors are recruited based upon students’ areas of passion which include everything from Art to Zoology!  For further information on the program please contact Laura Kent at 720-424-2300 or email Laura Kent.
