Seeking Fashion Design Mentors! – Community Resources, Inc. is seeking fashion design mentors to share their knowledge with Denver Public School students. The Academic Mentors Project matches high achieving DPS students, 5th through 8th grades, with community volunteers who are accomplished in their field. The program provides opportunities for learning that are not available in the regular classroom. Together, students and mentors work on small projects designed to help the students learn more about particular careers , or to increase their understanding and competence in an area of outstanding ability. Mentorships culminate after approximately six hours together, with the students presenting their project to share their learning experience with their classmates. The Academic Mentors Project has served more than 2200 students in Denver Public Schools since 1984. If you enjoy working with 10-14 year olds and want to make a difference in a student’s life by sharing your knowledge of fashion design, please contact Laura Kent at 720.424.6554 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
