By serving as ambassadors of the Center for Civic Engagement, Community Mentors (CMs) foster and guide the overall experience of course-based students involved in a number of campus-community partnerships. In doing so, CMs strengthen and maintain the relationship between St. Lawrence University and the local community.

As part of their partnership building, the mentors will train and support fellow students placed in Community Based Learning engagement activities. Job description are available below.
