Make a difference by volunteering as a mentor! It’s as simple as meeting for a cup of coffee, exchanging stories, playing video games together, or watching a movie. Share the activities you enjoy with your new friend! Volunteers set their own schedule with their student for a mutually convenient time. Mentors receive specialized training and ongoing support from Accessible Academics staff.
Undergraduate Peer Mentors
You will be matched with one of our students who attends your college or university. Volunteers are asked to commit to 4 hours per month for at least two semesters to build a friendship with their student. If you are interested in a peer mentor internship for college credit, please specify this in your application.
We are always seeking professionals in the field who would be interested in mentoring one of students. You will be matched with a student who has aspirations of a career in your area of expertise. Career Mentors meet with their student to provide guidance as they makes progress towards finishing their degree. Career Mentors do not have a minimum number of hours of commitment.
Board Position & Event Volunteers
We occasionally have open board positions or will need help with events. We are accepting volunteer applications for these types of positions on an ongoing basis. Thank you for considering volunteering with us in this capacity!
