Be a Mentor

Mentoring is a great opportunity to connect with a student on a special level. Our mentors are typically staff, faculty or alum of Calvin College, but we welcome others from the community to become involved as well! We are thankful for each mentor who is willing to invest in the life of a student.

It’s easier than you think!  Meet a few times each semester with a student.  Listen to their questions, offer counsel, encouragement and prayer. Meet over lunch or while enjoying a good cup of coffee! The initial committment is generally six meetings over the course of a semester.

**Coupons for coffee and lunch are available on a limited basis.**
