Rogers Scholars Alumni Mentoring Program

The Alumni Mentoring Program is a new program offered to Rogers Scholars Alumni who wish to attend the program in a mentoring role. Students accepted into the Alumni Mentoring Program will attend the one of The Center’s summer programs such as the Rogers Scholars or the Rogers Explorers camp and will serve as a role model for the students in the program. The number of students selected depends on the number of in-person camps held during the summer of 2022.  Students will serve as volunteers and mentors for the camp. Responsibilities also include assisting program staff in the execution of the daily agenda and serving as a Rogers Scholars representative in marketing and fundraising efforts throughout the following year. All meals and lodging are provided at no cost. Hours spent in the program are volunteer hours. Applications will open on January 1, 2022
