Volunteers from the UMD community will be coming together to lead the on-campus organization called College Mentors for Kids in a Leadership Seminar. The College Mentors for Kids program pairs students from in and around the DC area with college students. The after-school program provides meals as well as academic/social/emotional support during the week through their valuable mentor-mentee dynamic. Throughout the project, volunteers will lead discussions and encourage kids, who would not have the opportunity otherwise, to be exposed to a wide variety of role models and discuss leadership, character, and service. The children are ages 6-11 and the mentors will be assisting throughout the event as well.
T-shirts will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
