Watch for Volunteer Sign-ups! 

On April 22, 2020 over 800 sixth graders from Title 1 elementary schools will experience what it's like to be a college sudent at the U. Students will attend an assembly with campus leaders and performers, as well as visiting two college classes from a variety of campus departments.  Volunteers will act as mentors for a day by sharing their personal college experiences and leading the students throughout the various activities. This is all aimed to inspire access to higher education.

Time commitment:

  • One mandatory 1-hour orientation
  • Volunteer from 8 am - 1:30 pm on Project Youth Day, April 22, 2020 (Reading Day - No School) 
  • Group photo at the end of Project Youth Day

Please contact the Project Youth directors at for more information.
