The College of Education is searching for mentors to become involved in Young Professionals in Training, a mentoring and tutoring program for students in Lee and Macon County.

Students, faculty and staff from different colleges created the program to be a pipeline to Auburn University for various majors and fields, and the program’s design allows students to have exposure to different careers, focusing on environmental sustainability and social and emotional learning.

The students that will be involved are in grades five through 12, and mentors and tutors will serve as trusted advisors for the area’s students, including many of whom who come from underrepresented backgrounds.

Anyone interested in being a mentor or tutor should fill out this form by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 8. For more information, email:
