Questions for New Tutors, Bigs, and Youth Advisors

The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) is asking all students who are beginning to work with our primary educational and mentoring partners (A Better Chance, Big Brothers Big Sisters, El Arco Iris, Girls Inc., and Vela Scholars Program) to answer four questions about your expectations for the experience. The CCE is hoping to understand more about Amherst College students’ experiences working with our partners, and what Amherst College students are learning through this work.  This information will be shared with CCE staff, Partnership Staff, and Community Engagement Leaders (CELs).
