Want to Help our Students or have Intern Positions?
We are always looking for people who are interested in mentoring our students. If you have a desire to work with our college students please don’t hesitate to contact us. Our students have many adjustments going to college. They may need basics for their dorm rooms, transportation or just someone to talk to that has a college experience. Of course, what college student doesn’t need cash and most of them are willing to work on-line or pick up a few hours during the week or weekend. The jobs don’t have to be big to meet their needs.
