Make an impact Earn a Certificate While Mentoring Youth
Campus Connections Youth Mentoring program is a nationally recognized, award-winning, high-impact, service-learning course offered for academic credit through Human Development and Family Studies at CSU. CC promotes undergraduate student success and prepares students for jobs and graduate school after graduation. CC also promotes the resilience and life success of local at-risk youth.
The nine-credit undergraduate certificate in Youth Mentoring with Campus Connections enables students to develop invaluable professional skills, gain significant experience with adolescents, and evolve as leaders. Based on multiple semesters of involvement with CC, many students launch their careers working with youth in education, social services, criminal justice, healthcare, and other relevant professions. The CC experience often serves as the focus of their graduate school essays and is highlighted during interviews with employers setting them apart from their peers. CC is fun, rewarding, and beneficial for all participants!
