GWSB Community Service Mentorship Opportunity

GWSB students, join us as we take time to give back to the community. For one afternoon, make a difference to a student embarking on their college journey. Share business topics with high school students and help them understand what they can expect from a college experience, encouraging them to move to the next level of education. Mentors will assist with the workshops and attend the reception during the afternoon of Wednesday, April 6, 2011.

GWSB Mentors For A Day are undergraduate students that serve as mentors for visiting students from DC area high schools. Mentors encourage students to further their education by providing examples of their experience as a student in GWSB.

More information in regards to the program and application is available HERE.

Applications will be accepted until Friday, March 11, 2011. Interested students should submit their written application and resume to ugradbus@gwu.edu.
