Middle School Program Mentor or Volunteer Information
What better way to know that you've learned your business and rhetoric curriculum than to have to teach it to someone else? Be a part of a dynamic team of individuals giving back to the community and reach Beyond Yourself to youth from under resourced schools in the Bay Area. Be a part of the defining principles of the Haas School of Business and the University of California, Berkeley by working in a program that promotes access, excellence and equity for all in our community.
Each year YEAH mentors donate more than 9,000 hours—or the equivalent of almost five full time employees—which enables the program to be run cost efficiently.
Learn curriculum and teach the principles to groups of middle school students. Share your educational journey and enthusiasm for education. Be a role model.
Have an interest in mentoring local youth, and an interest in learning Youth Development Best Practices, and educational classroom management techniques. Attend at least 80% of the sessions.
