Volunteer

Become a Project Rousseau volunteer and help brighten the futures of underserved youth in your region. There are several ways you can become involved:

 

Become a Mentor

  • As a mentor at one of our participating colleges, you would be matched up with a Project Rousseau student in the same class as you, i.e. a college freshmen would be matched up with a 9th grader, a college sophomore with a 10th grader, etc.  
  • Mentors are expected to meet with their Mentee at least once a week over the course of their high school career.
  • The bond between our Mentors and Mentees is extremely powerful and is central to our program. 
  • These relationships have proven to be successful, lifelong friendships built on trust and mutual respect. 
  • Read our Mentor and Mentee testimonials here. 

 

Tutor our Students

  • All our students benefit from group SAT classes and subject specific classes as part of our academics pillar.
  • Classes take place on a weekly or fortnightly basis during term time and more frequently during vacations.
  • We rely on volunteers of all ages and academic specialities to facilitate our academic program.
  • We train our volunteer tutors and tailor our curriculum in order to expose our students to the best of US education.
  • Apply to join our team of expert tutors here.

 

Start a Chapter

  • We are looking to expand our existing chapters to cover new regions of the U.S.
  • If you are a college student or staff member and are interested in getting involved in running your own chapter as part of Project Rousseau, please contact us.
