Project Mentors Needed for Global Leaders Program

The Illinois Tech Global Leaders Program (GLP), formerly the IIT Boeing Scholars Academy, has exciting volunteer opportunities for adult professionals and undergraduate/graduate students who are interested in mentoring diverse, high-achieving high school juniors. The Global Leaders Program aims to inspire students to lead and serve their communities through STEM and access higher education. Lead Project Mentors and Assistant Project Mentors will work with a small team of high school juniors throughout the year as they implement Community Innovation Projects of their design. These projects address a real-world problem that Scholars care about. Project Mentors volunteer about 10 hours per month to meet and advise their team of six to eight Scholars.

If you have worked on projects and are interested in mentoring motivated youth, we need you. Learn more and apply here.
