This will require you to be connected to a current Year 11 student through an online mentoring platform up until they are in Year 13 ready to apply to university. Your role will be to answer any questions they may have about the course, as well as the social life at Cambridge, specifically about concerns that may arise coming from a particular ethnic background.
The timescale for this may mean you will graduate before they apply, however this is not an issue. If necessary, we can pass on to an incoming current student from the same subject.
This promises to be an excellent initiative, and we need student volunteers like you to help be part of the movement to recognise the need for this type of targeted outreach. Some basic training will be provided to allow you to be an effective mentor, which you can use in other endeavours.
We will also be offering honorariums for those who work the residential events, as well as providing food, accommodation and travel reimbursements.
