US Extracurricular and Leadership Mentoring:

As a Crimson Extracurricular and Leadership (ECL) mentor, you'd be working with students to A) help them expand their extracurricular profile, by means of pursuing leadership roles, exploring opportunities outside of school, and considering activities in a range of different interest areas; and B) to develop and execute a bespoke leadership project that demonstrates their interests, ingenuity, and initiative.

Our mentors are paired on a student-by-student basis, with the control to accept or decline students as their schedules allow. Allocations are made on the basis of subject compatibility, meaning that you will be working with students hoping to pursue a project in a realm similar to your own expertise. Popular project types and subject areas include:

  • Non-profit/community service
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Computer Science
  • Engineering (mechanical, electrical, chemical, etc)
  • Physics
  • Biology and Medical Sciences
  • Law
  • Performance, Theatre, and Fine Arts

If you have a skillset, educational background, or professional profile that matches the above areas, and you have a passion for education and mentorship, you'd likely be a great candidate for ECL Mentoring! Additional qualities of an ideal ECL mentor include strong project management and organizational skills, an attention to detail, and fantastic written and verbal communication skills.
