Oregon College Mentors is a program that prepares Willamette students to serve as mentors in high school classrooms and study halls throughout the Salem area. After receiving training, Willamette students then have the opportunity to serve in after school or Saturday school settings to provide academic, personal, and extracurricular support to Salem-area high school students. Since its inception in 2008, the program has expanded to serve a total of 9 high schools and alternative high schools in the Salem Keizer School District. Approximately 500 Willamette students have provided over 3200 hours of volunteer service as class room mentors, study hall tutors, one on one mentors, and athletic mentors, and the program continues to grow!
Oregon College Mentors aims to:
- connect college students with High School students to serve as positive influences,
- develop healthy and mutually beneficial relationships,
- provide academic support,
- increase the students of South Salem knowledge and desire to set/achieve post-graduate goals and dreams
