Want to connect with the Fort Collins community, build relationships, and gain experience working with youth? The Asian Pacific American Cultural Center (APACC) is now recruiting student mentors to work with 4th-6th grade Poudre School District students for the 2016-2017 academic year. We will be meeting bi-monthly (Every other weekend) on Sundays during the Fall and Spring semesters from 10-12 PM in the Lory Student Center. There will also be a mandatory training. This is a great opportunity for students to gain leadership skills, interpersonal communication skills, and develop meaningful relationships


Through mentoring, CSU students help youth gain a positive view of one’s possibilities and cultural pride. The goals of the program are to explore identity, explore community, and explore different experiences to foster meaningful and confident selves.
