The Stone House Center for Public Humanities is looking for student mentors for our Humanities Ladder program.
The Humanities Ladder provides college-level humanities education to high school students faced with socioeconomic difficulties through weekly team-taught sessions. As a student mentor, you will work with a Slippery Rock University professor by assisting students at Aliquippa High School OR Union Area High School with once-a-week classroom activities. The goals of the Humanities Ladder Program are to:
- Provide engaging opportunities for high school students to practice reflective critical thinking in disciplines like aesthetics, philosophy, anthropology, history, and more.
- Demystify college for low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students who might not otherwise attend university.
- Provide SRU students with opportunities for integrated learning and community engagement.
As a student mentor, you will gain valuable leadership skills and receive a stipend for ten weeks of service. Time commitment is approximately 3-4 hours one day a week.
If you are interested in being a mentor, please send your resume along with your availability for the fall 2017 semester to firstname.lastname@example.org.
