Latino Student Alliance (LSA) Community Outreach Academic Mentor Applicaton

Interested in mentoring, tutoring, and engaging with the local Latino community in Charlottesville? Then you have come to the right place! As an LSA Community Outreach academic mentor, you will be assigned to an elementary-school aged student from the local Southwood community, which is an under-served community of mainly Latino immigrants and people of Latino descent. Beyond Academic Mentoring, you can also aid in the annual spring visit of Southwood kiddies to U.Va, and you are also more than welcome to mingle, enjoy, and even join U.Va.'s own Latino Student Alliance!

Here's the run-down: once a week from the Elson Student Health parking lot at 4 PM, you'll come take a five minute rive over to the Southwood Community Center with your fellow mentors, where you'll spend a delightful hour and a half with your engaging mentee. Be prepared to engage in activities ranging from tutoring in math, science, reading, and English as a second language (ESL), to artistic activities and playing fun games outdoors. However, your main role is to serve as a role model, tutor, and friend!

After completing this application, stay tuned for additional information on an info session and meeting with the LSA Community Community Outreach Co-chairs, Simone Mendes (snm7cg@virginia.edu), and Elizabeth Bickley (ebb3qr@virginia.edu). Get pumped for an awesome semester of bonding and engagement. We can't wait to meet you :)

**You do NOT have to speak Spanish, or be Latino/a to join. ALL ARE WELCOME!**
