Are you interested in connecting with the Fort Collins community, building relationships, and gaining mentorship experience 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 2018-2019 academic year. Explore is primarily focused on discussions of identity, discrimination and stereotypes of Asian, Pacific Islander and Desi American(APIDA) people in the media and in everyday life. In this program, CSU student volunteers(Guides) and students(Explorers) reflect on their identities and learn to empower each other. We will be meeting approximately every other Sunday during the Fall and Spring semesters from 10 AM – 12 PM on CSU’s main campus unless otherwise noted. There will also be a mandatory training for Guides. This is a valuable opportunity for students to gain leadership skillsinterpersonal 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, community, and different experiences to foster connected and confident selves.
