Mentor/Tutoring and Academic Counseling

The CHAMP Program is looking for college students to serve as mentor/tutors to Camden City middle and High School students. Mentoring is an integral part of the program, allowing college students who are currently enrolled to share the benefits of attending college with our students.

Housed in the Rowan University Camden Academic Building, the goal of the program is to provide participants with a solid foundation to enabling them to successfully complete post-secondary programs leading to careers in fields which persons from minority and/or disadvantage backgrounds are underrepresented, such as engineering, computer science, medicine, and environmental science.

 

Each potential Mentor has to undergo an extensive application, selection and training process including:

1. Background Check-Applicants may be required to complete a NJ SBI212B form so that a state back

    ground check will be performed.

3. Interview-Selected applicants will be called for individual interviews.

4. Training-Applicants who are accepted into the program must attend a three-hour training session.

Interested candidates must complete a CHAMP Mentor Application. Please contact the CHAMP Office for a Mentor Application.  Our number is (856) 361-2920.
